Welcome to a new installment of “What Robin’s Reading,” our bimonthly feature that highlights what the Robin Weingast team is reading to stay current and up-to-date on the issues that will most impact our clients and their benefits planning.
This month we’re reading “Big threat to small biz workers in Obamacare case” and “States Scramble for ‘Plan B’ Ahead of Court Ruling on Obamacare.” This June, the Supreme Court will rule on King v. Burwell, a case that could alter the Affordable Care Act for the almost 8 million people in 24 states who rely on the federal exchange. Pending the ruling, millions of Americans stand to lose their subsidized coverage.
In a “Need to Know” post from last year, we explored how small businesses benefitted from the Affordable Care Act. With this ruling on the horizon, small businesses are particularly vulnerable to any changes to Obamacare. In the meantime, states are preparing for the ruling by creating workaround solutions that would ensure those covered under the Affordable Care Act don’t lose their healthcare coverage.
The Robin Weingast & Associates team is carefully watching to see how the ruling will impact all businesses — small or large. If you have questions, please contact us; we’re here to help.
