The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in King v. Burwell upheld the use of federal subsidies to fund the Affordable Care Act’s insurance marketplaces. Though many believed this decision would end the major challenges to the ACA, a federal court recently allowed suit filed by Congress challenging the cost-sharing reduction payments of the Act to proceed. The cost-sharing reduction challenge argues that the President’s administration is illegally compensating insurance companies in order to reduce the cost-sharing obligations of low-income insureds. Furthermore, the implementation of the ACA will likely encounter additional challenges not yet subjected to judicial interpretation. This panel will convene several legal and policy experts to discuss challenges to the ACA that remain or are likely to arise after the King v. Burwell decision.
