Supreme Court Declines Expedited Review of ACA Lawsuit

In a blow to the managed care industry, the Supreme Court chose to delay intervening in Texas v. United States, the Republican state attorneys general-led lawsuit that would overturn the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

“By declining to take up this case in an expedited manner, the Supreme Court leaves in place the cloud of uncertainty that hangs over the Affordable Care Act,” said Association for Community Affiliated Plans (ACAP) CEO Margaret A. Murray in a press release. “We are disappointed in the Court’s decision. Consumers will continue to pay the price for this confusion as the case stagnates, but we remain confident the ACA will withstand this challenge.”
