After King v. Burwell: Next Steps for the Affordable Care Act

Abstract

With the Supreme Court deciding the King v. Burwell case in favor of the government, premium tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies for the purchase of private health insurance policies remain available to residents in all states, including those with federally facilitated health insurance marketplaces (FFMs). Now that this important issue is settled, policymakers can move forward to complete the implementation of the law and fix several of the problems that have emerged. In this paper, we discuss several outstanding problems and then propose solutions.
