Supreme Court Upholds ACA

Supreme Court Upholds ACA


The U.S. Supreme Court today upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-152, the “Affordable Care Act” or ACA), finding the individual mandate is constitutional under congressional taxing authority and that Medicaid expansion is constitutional but limited in terms of how states can be penalized. The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) is gratified by the decision. We led the fight to include rehabilitation as an essential health benefit under the law. BIAA will continue to advocate on behalf of individuals with brain injury and their families. Please watch our website for further analysis and visit the Advocacy and Government Affairs section for BIAA’s comments on proposed rules and regulations under the law.
