Status Quo intact on ACA Subsidies

The US Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold a key provision of the Affordable Care Act is good news for North Carolinians who are receiving subsidized health insurance.  The 6-3 decision to reject the legal challenge that sought to eliminate subsidies for residents of states that didn't set up their  own state based health exchange maintains the status quo.  North Carolina is one of those states directly effected by the decision. Jaclyn Kiger is an Affordable Care Navigator and an attorney with Pisgah Legal Services.  She spoke with David Hurand.
