Supreme Court Boots Challenge to ACA Employer Mandate

supreme court does not review aca case

First let me tell you that the information in this publication is provided for informational purposes only and is not to be construed as legal advice or to suggest the suitability of action in any particular circumstance. Now, let’s talk about the highest judges in the land and their steel-toed boots.

The U.S. Supreme Court has denied review of a case challenging the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate (Hotze v. Burwell, U.S., No. 15-622, review denied 2/29/16). The denial leaves standing a decision that a tax law provision that bars prepayment court review of the assessment or collection of a tax precludes review of the requirement that large employers provide health insurance for their full-time employees under the ACA.

The case is one of multiple lawsuits that have sought to kill the health reform law one provision at a time. In general, the Supreme Court has resisted, ruling against a challenge to the ACA’s individual mandate and refusing to limit the availability of tax credits.

So, if you are counting on the ACA going away any time soon: No matter who becomes the president, you should not hold your breath.
