Full Steam Ahead: Affordable Care Act Preparations and Compliance by Issuers and ASOs Must Continue
On June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court of the United States issued its much-anticipated opinion in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, 567 U.S. __ (2012). The Court ruled on key issues affecting the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("ACA"): (i) it upheld the constitutionality of the 'individual mandate' as a tax; and (ii) it found unconstitutional a provision that would permit the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to withdraw all of the Medicaid funding provided to a state if that state chooses not to expand Medicaid to certain thresholds set forth in the Act.
To assist our issuer and ASO clients, and those doing business with them, we are planning a series of webinars concerning some of the practical implications of the ACA.
