Status Quo intact on ACA Subsidies

Jul 1, 2015

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.
