King v. Burwell: Reading the Argument Tea Leaves

The Supreme Court of the United States is poised to consider a critical challenge to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The case challenges the availability of federal tax credits for individuals who purchase health insurance in states that did not establish health insurance exchanges and rely instead on the federal exchange. The case has the potential to significantly disrupt the operation of the ACA in those states. McDermott Will & Emery and McDermott+Consulting are pleased to host a complimentary webcast the day after the March 4, 2015, oral argument to discuss the following topics:

  • Potential outcomes and implications for insurers, providers and employers

  • Potential effects on ACA market reforms and individual and employer mandates

  • States affected by the ruling and potential reactions within each state

  • Potential congressional and executive branch responses

A final decision in the case is expected by the end of the Supreme Court’s term on June 29, 2015. Shortly after that decision is issued, McDermott will host a second webcast to discuss the reasoning and implications of the decision. Details will be forthcoming.
