Reaction to Conflicting Court Decisions on Subsidies for the Affordable Care Act


Unfortunately the decisions conflict.

 

The court in Washington D.C. ruled only state exchanges can offer subsidies, while the court in Virginia ruled these subsidies can be offered at the feeral exchange.

 

Steve Buckstein with the Cascade Policy Institute says he warned the Cover Oregon Board back in April, these cases could have ramificaitons for Oreognians when they go to the federal website starting this November.

 

"These cases have been percolating thorugh the system and they are now on the front burner and hopefully they will lead to a broader discussion on can the President ignore congress and what the law says and make up his own rules?"

 

Cover Oergon officials says the court decisions will not affect Oregonians because we are considered a "supported state-based exchange."

 

Buckstein expects the final decision to come from the Supreme Court or Congress.
