Obamacare Back At The High Court - With Billions For Insurers On The Line

December 9, 2019, KHN, Phil Galewitz - More than $12 billion is at stake for the nation’s health insurers Tuesday when the Supreme Court hears another Affordable Care Act case.

Unlike earlier Obamacare cases before the high court - where the entire 2010 law and health coverage for millions of Americans was at risk - the latest case has largely flown under consumers’ radar.
