Resources and Reports

The Supreme Court has set aside the week of March 26 to hear oral arguments in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) challenge. On March 26, the Court will focus on whether the challenges to the individual mandate are barred by the federal Anti-Injunction Act. On March 27, oral arguments will center on the constitutionality of the insurance mandate in the ACA. On March 28, oral arguments will address both whether the ACA can survive if the individual mandate is found unconstitutional as well as the constitutionality of the ACA Medicaid expansion.

 A new Kaiser Family Foundation policy brief provides an overview of the pending case, the key constitutional questions to be decided, and the legal arguments made by the parties involved.
