ObamaCare Backup Approved In Two States


If the Supreme Court rules against the federal government in King v Burwell, Delaware and Pennsylvania have back-up plans. (History buffs know those were the first two states to join the Union. Your move, New Jersey.) The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced Monday that the two states are "constitutionally approved" to set up their own healthcare marketplaces, reports The Hill. The 34 states that don't run their own exchanges could lose subsidies for individuals buying healthcare if the Supreme Court rules against ACA this month. Only Delaware and Pennsylvania have submitted contingency plans. [Hill]
