United States Supreme Court Schedules Argument on Affordable Care Act Challenge

On November 10, 2020, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in California v. Texas. The arguments will address the questions of whether 1) the individual mandate provision is severable from the rest of the ACA; and 2) reducing the shared responsibility payment to zero renders the minimum coverage provision unconstitutional.  The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals had held the ACA’s individual mandate unconstitutional.
