ACA Subsidies Upheld by Supreme Court

The Supreme Court recently ruled that subsidies can indeed be accessed by people in all 50 states, even those who are taking advantage of the federal exchange through HealthCare.gov. This ruling was upheld 6 to 3.  The Supreme Court case stemmed from wording in the ACA legislative language which referred to exchanges (i.e. marketplaces) qualifying for subsidies as exchanges “established by the State”.  The Supreme Court ruled today that the word “State” refers to both state and federal based exchanges.  The following articles offer additional insight.
