King v. Burwell: The Supreme Court Rules in Favor of the Administration and the Affordable Care Act Survives

Littler Mendelson, P.C. • June 26, 2015
The U.S. Supreme Court has once again ruled in favor of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). At issue in King. v. Burwell was whether the landmark legislation allows federal subsidies to be given to low-income consumers residing in the 34 states that did not set up their own health insurance Exchange. In a 6-3 decision, the Court answered in the affirmative, preserving subsidies for millions of Americans who purchased their health insurance through a Federal Exchange. Affirming the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the Supreme Court opined that the tax credits are, indeed, available to individuals in states that use a Federal Exchange. The majority decision was written by Chief Justice Roberts, and joined by Justices Kennedy, Ginsberg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan, while Justices Scalia, Thomas and Alito dissented.

In the 6-3 opinion, the Supreme Court held subsidies available to Exchange enrollees under the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) are available regardless of whether coverage is purchased through state-based or federal Exchanges.

King v. Burwell: What to Expect From the Supreme Court Argument

Ogletree Deakins • March 03, 2015
On Wednesday, March 4, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States will hear argument in King v. Burwell, a case involving premium tax credits under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Among its many provisions, the ACA includes one that authorizes a refundable federal income tax credit to assist low-income taxpayers to pay for health coverage obtained through a health insurance marketplace (referred to as an “Exchange”) established by a state under ACA § 1311. The only issue before the Court in King is the validity of a Treasury regulation implementing the premium tax credit provision of the ACA.
