SW Benefits Update - Three Strikes You’re Out — The Affordable Care Act Survives a Third Legal Challenge: Let’s Move On to the Consolidated Appropriations Act
June 17, 2021
For employers holding out hope that some or all of the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) would be overturned in its most recent challenge, that will not be the case, at least not by the hand of the United States Supreme Court. On June 17, in a 7-2 ruling, the Supreme Court held that none of the plaintiffs in California et. al v. Texas et. al, two individuals and over a dozen states, had standing to bring the case. Accordingly, the whole of ACA survives. This means employers and their group health plans must continue complying with its requirements.
