Anthony F. Shelley Comments on States' Challenge to the ACA in ThinkAdvisor

"States Continue ACA 'Civil War' in the Courts: NAIC Meeting Speaker"


Anthony F. Shelley, speaking at the National Association of Insurance Commissioners summer meeting, commented on the ongoing litigation surrounding the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Texas v. United States – in which the state argues that the ACA's individual mandate and related provisions are unconstitutional – poses a "serious and potentially mortal challenge to the ACA in the individual market," Shelley said, adding that states look as if they're fighting a "litigation 'civil war'" with each other over a number of ACA-related issues.
