ML Strategies has posted its weekly Health Care Update. This publication provides timely information on the Affordable Care Act implementation and other federal regulatory initiatives, and covers other updates affecting the health care industry.
With less than one week until arguments in King v. Burwell, the IRS is in the spotlight as lawmakers deliberate potential outcomes if the Supreme Court does not uphold the constitutionality of federal tax subsidies for individuals in states that did not create their own health care exchanges. This comes on the heels of Secretary Burwell's announcement that about 11.4 million consumers selected a plan or re-enrolled through the health insurance exchanges since the beginning of this year’s Open Enrollment under the Affordable Care Act.
The update also highlights the public health workshop held this week by the DOJ and FTC, examining competition and reviewing provider frameworks and network organization, along with changes in payment models. As we mentioned here yesterday, Mintz Levin’s Dionne Lomax took part in a closing roundtable at the workshop. Stay tuned to this blog for takeaways from the two-day event.
