Vernaglia Discusses Conflicting Rulings on Obamacare-Related Subsidies

24 July 2014 InsideCounsel News


Partner Larry Vernaglia was quoted in an InsideCounsel article on July 24, 2014, titled, “Conflicting Rulings on Obamacare-Related Subsidies Raise New Questions.” The article analyzed two conflicting recent federal appeals court rulings related to the Affordable Care Act. Vernaglia recommends that general counsel follow the developments of these cases in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit in Richmond, Va.

He was quoted saying “if the D.C. Court of Appeals decision ultimately stands, it could mean, at least, that there will be an increase in the number of uninsured, low-income patients in markets where the states have not implemented an exchange. Of course, this outcome could be some time in the future. Until that time, health care organizations should also be prepared to submit friend of the court (“amicus”) briefs detailing both the legal and practical impact of these decisions.”
