Supreme Court Upholds Affordable Care Act
On Thursday morning the Supreme Court largely upheld the Affordable Care Act.
While the Court allowed the so-called individual mandate to stand ruling that it is constitutional as a tax, and while they ruled that the Medicaid expansion is legal, the federal government can't take away Medicaid funding from individual states. (you can read the entire decision here.)
This hotly contested and deeply politicized case represents a monumental impact on the health care system, insurance, and the lives of millions of Americans.
Thursday on Up to Date, we provide quick analysis of the ruling with health policy experts, and hear from politicians, providers, insurance companies, hospitals, and YOU about what this decision means for the health care system, insurance providers, and millions of Americans.
