FOUR WORDS THAT CAN KILL OBAMACARE

FOUR WORDS THAT CAN KILL OBAMACARE

The Supreme Court at this moment is deciding on whether or not to hear a case which is bound to have a huge negative impact on Obamacare as well as to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who enrolled for it and are currently benefiting from it.
One of the several challenges which are based on language that can be found in the affordable Care Act which basically allows the government to offer individuals who have enrolled in policies which were sold on the health exchange is the case, King v. Burwell.
In order to make the healthcare more affordable the government introduced subsidiaries, but the lawsuit which is currently waiting to be heard by the Supreme Court charge that the Affordable Care Act wording doesn’t allow for subsidiaries from the federal government.
When looking at the basis of this law then you realize that there are four words which play a huge role. The language reads that one can be able to receive subsidiaries in an event that they end up purchasing on an exchange health care insurance.
The plaintiff in this case argues that people who end up enrolling for coverage in any of the 34 states which rely on federal portal that is HealthCare.gov are not eligible due to the fact that the law in itself doesn’t clearly and explicitly mentions the federal exchange.
If the court ends up siding with them then it is estimated that 4.6 million people will have today a lot of money for their coverage.
In this year, alone figures indicate that 85% of Americans enrolled for the Obamacare received subsidiaries.
