In March 2012, the United States Supreme Court heard arguments on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The court considered four questions, including whether the ACA’s individual mandate and Medicaid expansion provisions are constitutional. In a landmark decision on June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court ruled the ACA as constitutional, with the exception that the federal government's power to terminate states' Medicaid funds is narrowly read. The presenters will discuss the Supreme Court's decision and its implications for the ACA's reforms to the individual insurance market, the Medicaid expansion, and, of course, the future of the ACA's public health-related provisions and the federal funding that goes along with them. Also, find additional resources on the ACA and the Supreme Court decision hereYou may qualify for CLE credit.
