Appellate Courts Issue Conflicting Decisions On Obamacare Insurance Subsidies   1 comment

As more & more news comes out concerning today’s conflicting appellate decisions in regards to the ACA insurance subsidies, I’m of two minds here…on the one hand, the D.C. Circuit’s decision hinges on nothing more than a reading error in the law’s subsidy language, which tends to make me think that when the full circuit hears this case – and its’ almost certain they will – odds are, they’ll likely reverse the 3-judge panel’s decision.

On the other hand, given that the 4th Circuit issued pretty much the exact opposite decision today, its’ an almost certain bet that the Supreme Court will, at some point down the road, hear the case. Why? Simple: whenever two or more appellate courts issue conflicting decisions on a case, the Supreme Court is all-but-honor-bound to hear the case, if not for any other reason than to put the issue to bed once and for all…and given the Court’s narrow ruling back in 2012 concerning another major piece of the ACA, I won’t even begin to speculate on what might happen until the case actually goes before the Court.
