US Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Another ACA Case

Dianne De La Mare

The US Supreme Court has declined to hear another Affordable Care Act (ACA) case, which would have contested the constitutionality of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), established under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), among other things. The IPAB is designed to limit spending growth in Medicare, but many believe it also will result in limiting care for seniors.

The Supreme Court’s refusal to take the case was expected, as lower courts had ruled in favor of the federal government, stating that the case was not ripe. However, the Goldwater Institute, the Arizona legal group that brought the case, promises to bring it back when IPAB begins to take action.
