U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer struck down a portion of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act health law, ruling in favor that the Obama administration unconstitutionally provided money to pay for subsidies that were allegedly never appropriated by Congress for the ACA’s cost-sharing provisions.

Those provisions include covering costs for co-payments, reduced deductibles & coinsurance, that an estimated 5.6 million or 56% of Americans receive for plans purchased through the Affordable Care Act’s insurance exchanges. Continue Reading

Tardy Tax Filers Risk Losing Health Insurance Subsidies

Sign-up season for President Barack Obama’s health care law doesn’t start for another couple of months, but the next few days are crucial for hundreds of thousands of customers at risk of losing financial aid when they renew coverage for 2016.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s health care law is snared in another big legal battle after two federal appeals courts issued contradictory rulings on a key financing issue Tuesday.

A divided court panel in Washington called into question the subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people pay their premiums, saying financial aid can be paid only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges.
