Court Challenges to the Affordable Care Act Health law and policy experts talked about recent federal appeals court panels that issued divergent opinions in two cases* regarding the Affordable Care Act. The panelists explained the implications for states and consumers if subsidies in states with federally-facilitated exchanges were ruled invalid.

* In July 2014, a federal appeals court called into question tax subsidies that assist low- and middle- income Americans, saying financial aid could only be paid in states that had established their own health insurance exchanges. At the time of the event, 36 states had insurance exchanges operated by the federal government. A separate appeals court came to an opposite ruling saying that the IRS correctly interpreted the will of Congress when it issued regulations allowing subsidies in all 50 states. close
