Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals hears oral arguments on ACA

Bookmark and Share

Earlier this week, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in Texas v. United States, the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the ACA. HANYS is party to the amicus brief filed along with 23 other state hospital associations in support of the law. A review of the transcript indicates the possibility that the lower court’s decision could be upheld, which would invalidate the entire ACA. It is expected that any ruling will be appealed to the Supreme Court, which would likely result in the issuance of a final decision in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election. HANYS will continue to vigorously support all efforts to uphold the law. Contact: Sandi Toll
