Health Insurance Enrollment Ends at the Supreme Court

  

 

Obamacare is back in front of the Supreme Court, with a case determining if subsidies should be available through the federal healthcare.gov insurance exchange. The issue is whether the federal exchange (used in 37 states) is allowed to give subsidies like state exchanges. In contrast, state exchanges operate in 13 states and Washington DC. The case, King v. Burwell, would affect the nearly 8 million Americans receiving subsidies for insurance purchased on the federal exchange.

The case was heard just as the 2015 enrollment period closed. Insurance plans purchased on the small business (SHOP) exchanges will remain open throughout the year. New hires are also allowed to sign up for individual insurance at any point. Should the Court find subsidies unlawful, an act of Congress would be required to keep subsidies available. Absent that, subsidies could be halted immediately following the Court’s decision, expected in June.
