New Brief Provides a Guide to the Supreme Court’s Affordable Care Act Decision

A new policy brief from the Kaiser Family Foundation explains the key issues in the Supreme Court’s recent ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act. The brief examines the Court’s affirmation that the individual mandate is constitutional and explains the justices’ more complex decision to limit the law’s enforcement mechanism for the Medicaid expansion while allowing the overall expansion of that program to go forward. It also looks ahead to the implementation of health reform now that questions about the constitutionality of the law have been resolved.

The new guide is one of many Foundation resources about the law available on the Health Reform Source website.

The Kaiser Family Foundation, a leader in health policy analysis, health journalism and communication, is dedicated to filling the need for trusted, independent information on the major health issues facing our nation and its people. The Foundation is a non-profit private operating foundation, based in Menlo Park, California.
