Ario Discusses the Supreme Court’s Oral Arguments in the Affordable Care Act Case

Manatt Health managing director Joel Ario spoke with Modern Healthcare and Insurance News Net about the Supreme Court’s pivotal California v. Texas case, and how its decision might impact the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In his interview with Insurance News Net, Ario discussed the issue of “severability” and whether the ACA can stand without the individual mandate provision. “If the court says the mandate is unconstitutional, then the question becomes severability – whether the law can stand without the mandate,” Ario said. “In 2017, [Congress] took the mandate down but left the rest of the law intact,” he added.
