Affordable Care Act Litigation

This site includes materials, from the premiumtaxcredits.wikispaces.com and subsidieson1321cexchanges.wikispaces.com sites, copied over in September 2018.

Right now, things are organized in sub-pages; here are some links that might help get from one sub-page to another.

But first, a recently-released article on Affordable Care Act litigation — based partly on this web site.

Gluck-Reagan-Turret_The-Affordable-Care-Act’s-Litigation-Decade

And, second, a link to a short-term calendar of ACA litigation events:

an-aca-litigation-calendar-for-june-through-october-2021-9-19-21

I’ll do my best to update this every couple of days.  Here, for nostalgia purposes, are two of the most elephantine of earlier versions.  One was last updated just after the California v. Texas oral argument:

an-aca-litigation-calendar-for-march-through-november-2020-11-10-pm

The other was updated just before the California v. Texas decision issued:

an-aca-litigation-calendar-for-october-2020-through-june-2021-6-17

For the page on the Trump to Biden transition, with a link at the top of the page to updates, see:

Transition 2020-2021

And, third, a sub-page on “The ACA at 10”

“ACA at 10” and other materials

The first substantive sub-page deals with “A Global Challenge”: Texas v. U.S., No. 4:18-cv-167 (N.D. Tex.), appeal, No. 19-10011 (5th Cir.), and the declaratory judgment suit, State of Maryland v. U.S., No. 1:18-cv-2849 (D. Md.).

Another sub-page, “Whittling away,” presents cases challenging Administration proposals about association health plans, the 2019 regulations, and short-term and limited duration policies.

And risk corridors and risk adjustments:

https://affordablecareactlitigation.com/risk-corridors-and-risk-adjustment/

Then there are four Medicaid sub-pages, one about state-level disputes implicating the Medicaid expansion:

https://affordablecareactlitigation.com/aca-litigation-state-by-state/

Another about 1115 waivers for “Community Engagement”: proposals for work requirement disqualifications, lifetime limits, and other prohibitions :

https://affordablecareactlitigation.com/1115-medicaid-waivers-community-engagement/

A third about 1115 ‘block grant’ waivers, such as the one semi-proposed for Alaska, and semi-tried-out in Rhode Island

https://affordablecareactlitigation.com/medicaid-1115-block-grant-waiver

And the fourth, “Artist M. redivivus,” about whether Medicaid Act rights are enforceable:

https://affordablecareactlitigation.com/artist-m-redivivus/

I have also added a page with some information about the public charge litigation:

Public Charge (disability claims)

Then, of course, a collection of cases that are now closed, such as King v. Burwell, Halbig, Pruitt, Indiana v. I.R.S; and Ohio and West Virginia [The King Supreme Court briefing and orders from the other Halbig-type premium tax credits cases are up, but other materials from the Halbig-type cases are not up]:

Separately, here’s an incomplete collection of Supreme Court briefing in NFIB v. Sebelius:

Here is a sub-page on the ACA’s legislative history:

https://affordablecareactlitigation.com/aca-legislative-history/

https://affordablecareactlitigation.com/miscellaneous-aca-litigation/

Added to the site in November 2020, a page about the transition:

Transition 2020-2021

Here is a crib sheet, showing the cases I’m trying to track:

on-and-off-the-books-9-12-21

A list, originally compiled December 21, 2018, and last updated December 5, 2020, showing the cases I was then trying actively to track.  Gray: not tracking very actively.
