Austin Health Insurance Expedited Via High Court Reviewby DAVIS BROWN PRC Agency
Austin health insurance and the future of the now 10-year-old Affordable Care Act is still very much in flux after the nation’s highest court opted not to review the embattled healthcare bill’s constitutionality on an expedited basis. The request for a fast-track review was made by 19 states in hopes of having a decision handed down before the November general election. Instead, the high court sent the case back to the U.S. district court to decide if the entire law should be thrown out. A decision will have to wait until the court begins its new term on October 1.
There won’t be any further expedited requests for a replacement bill unless the high court were to change its mind. The reason the high court was forced to get involved is based on backlash over a previous ruling in December by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld a previous decision that the penalty for individuals who did not buy health insurance in Austin was unconstitutional. Blue state lawmakers are pressing to not only lift the appeal but have all legal battles ended in favor of the ACA. Conversely, red states have long said that the entire ACA should be dismantled in its entirety.
Rick Thornton, a health insurance agent in Austin said the current legal battles are far from over, but they have been put on the backburner for the time being. He said the reason why so many government officials want to spring into action with a ruling is twofold. Annual national spending is on pace to hit $6 trillion because of the costs for Medicare and private insurance — even as American use less care. On top of that, millions more Americans don’t have health insurance compared to several years ago, and those who do have it can’t afford basic medication and services.
