As of this writing, a recent decision on December 15, 2018 by a federal court in Texas challenges the constitutionality of the ACA. Legal buffs can read the entire decision here.
However, this decision is certain to be appealed in higher courts, and as the Associated Press (AP) states:
"While the decision by the Republican-appointed judge in Texas was sweeping, it has little immediate practical impact because the Affordable Care Act remains in place while the legal battle continues, possibly to the Supreme Court."
The resolution is certain to be months in the making. And with that, the counsel of benefitexpress experts to employers and brokers is to continue with plans to meet the compliance requirements of the ACA, in order to avoid being assessed penalties by the IRS.
