The U.S. Supreme Court’s recently heard a new set of arguments regarding the constitutionality of Affordable Care Act in King v. Burwell. The focal point of the case centers on the funding of insurance marketplaces and one particular section of the law that states subsidies should flow to customers “through an Exchange established by the state.” Plaintiffs argued that the plain language of the legislation means that only people in the state-run marketplaces – and not those in federally run marketplaces – can get the subsidies. The government’s defense relied on the contextual reading of the legislation and asked the Court to look at Congress’s legislative intent. This panel discussion will include an explanation of the plaintiffs’ position from one of the architects of the legislation as well as the counter arguments and practical realities of the Supreme Court’s upcoming decision from two other panelists.
This lecture will be of interest to any Ohio attorney who represents corporations and small businesses that provide health insurance for employees or represents employees enrolled in health care plans.
