League Joins Amicus Brief in King v. Burwell

The League has joined an amicus brief in the case of King v. Burwell, which will be heard by the Supreme Court on March 4. King v. Burwell is the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and it will determine whether tax-credit subsidies can be provided to applicants for health insurance through the federally-facilitated health exchanges or just to those using an exchange established directly by a state. If the Court blocks tax subsidies to applicants from the states using the federally-facilitated exchanges, the underpinnings of the ACA will be in danger. The brief joined by the League focuses on the impact of the ACA on women's health and how the tax subsidies are essential to women's health and critical to the ACA's continued viability.
