A lawsuit against the Obama Administration's Affordable Care Act will be heard by the Supreme Court.
With this, the lawsuit, which claims the health insurance law is unconstitutional, will have one more chance. However, the highest court in the United States will only take the decision from the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals into account. The decision was two to one and noted that the mandate in the law was not justified in some aspects.
However, the White House is confident that the law will be upheld.
"Earlier this year, the Obama Administration asked the Supreme Court to consider legal challenges to the health reform law and we are pleased the Court has agreed to hear this case, said Dan Pfeiffer, director of communications for The White House. "We know the Affordable Care Act is constitutional and are confident the Supreme Court will agree."
Consumers may be quite concerned about their healthcare situation if the law remains in place. For those who want to try to lock down a plan in the interim, it could be important to compare affordable health insurance rates. This could help a person save money and still earn the coverage they want.
