Hobby Lobby And Halbig: The Next Generation Of Aca Legal Challenges


Date: Monday, June 16, 2014
Time: 12:00PM - 01:15PM
Description: Two years after the Supreme Court's decision in NFIB v Sebelius, the Affordable Care Act continues to face legal challenges. In March, the Court heard challenges to the ACA’s contraception coverage provisions in Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood. A ruling on those cases is expected at the end of June and could have important implications for employer-provided healthcare coverage and, more broadly, the law of corporations. Other challenges have not made it to the Supreme Court but may be making their way up. The most prominent of these is Halbig v Sebelius, which if successful, would threaten the federal health insurance exchanges that have been set up in thirty-six states. In this lunchtime panel, experts from across the political spectrum will share their insights on these two important cases.
