Day Pitney To Report from Courtroom as U.S. Supreme Court Takes Up Affordable Care Act March 26-28

Publisher: Day Pitney Press Release
March 22, 2012

Day Pitney's Bruce Boisture will be attending the U.S. Supreme Court hearings on the constitutionality of two key parts of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act March 26-28. Each day after the hearings, he will be writing a brief summary of the oral argument for distribution to interested parties.

Sign-up for these daily dispatches is available through a link on the firm's website at www.daypitney.com in the lower-right corner of the screen.

Those most likely to be interested in the cases include:

  • Participants at all levels in the health care system
  • Health insurance companies
  • State and local governmental agencies that rely on Medicaid funding
  • Employers with more than 50 employees
  • Interested citizens

The provisions of the Act immediately at issue are the so-called individual mandate, requiring most individuals to either maintain health insurance or pay an annual penalty, and the extension of Medicaid coverage to single adults without dependents, the latter expected to result in $20 billion to $40 billion of additional Medicaid expense to the states over the next 10 years. Significant severability issues may also call into question most of the other insurance-market-related provisions of the Act, including its guaranteed-issuance and community-rating requirements for the individual insurance market.
