As its mandates begin to take effect, the Affordable Care Act dodged another legal bullet this past week when the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) declined to hear an appeal of a suit brought by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons challenging the requirement for recertification of physicians as well as a number of Obama Care provisions. There is another challenge to the ACA still pending before SCOTUS (King v Burwell) that questions the provision of tax credits in states that have relied on the federal health exchange and refused or neglected to create their own health exchanges. Obama Care limits the credits to those who buy their insurance “from the state.” Oral arguments in that case are scheduled for March 4, 2015.
