Outlook 2015: Legal Challenges to Subsidies, Enrollment Among Top Issues
Jan.07.2015 — Bloomberg BNA
Crowell & Moring Health Care Group attorneys, Arthur N. Lerner, Christine M. Clements, and A. Xavier Baker, discuss with Bloomberg BNA the top list of issues for 2015 as noted by the BNA's Health Insurance Report advisory board members in the annual Outlook survey. Of the top 10 issues, the question as to whether or not the Affordable Care Act (ACA) subsidies will remain the law ranks high on the list. As many agree that blanket repeal of the ACA is unlikely, Lerner believes that "They [Congress] then may try to repeal individual pieces, such as the risk sharing, the medical device tax, the individual mandate, and other elements." The article continues, touching on other potential risks for health insurers and what they should be aware of and to look out for as the year unfolds.
