JAMA Forum: If King v Burwell Ruling Imperils ACA Subsidies for Millions, Is the Fallout Avoidable?

Larry Levitt’s June 2015 post explores what could happen if the U.S. Supreme Court rules for the King v. Burwell challengers and Congress moves forward with a bill that temporarily continues subsidies but repeals the individual mandate and other provisions of the Affordable Care Act. The Court is expected to rule this month in the lawsuit, which challenges the legality of providing subsidies to low and moderate income people in 34 states using the federally-facilitated insurance marketplaces established by the health law. The post is now available at The JAMA Forum.
