Jolie Havens, a partner in the Columbus office and chair of the health care group, was featured in a Law360 story regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision that Affordable Care Act health insurance subsidies can continue to be obtained by consumers through both state and federally run health insurance marketplaces.

The story states:

“Health care remains a deeply complex, emotional and divisive issue facing our country. The Supreme Court’s decision — upholding subsidies in the 34 states utilizing the federal marketplace — will be applauded and criticized for ‘saving’ the ACA yet again. Underlying the decision is the philosophical view that affordable health coverage should be available to Americans in all states. Query whether full implementation of the ACA has been truly inevitable all along or whether the court’s decision might have been different in years past, well before the opposite decision had the power to jeopardize coverage for 6.4 million Americans.”
