A group of people who opposed health insurance subsidies regarding the Affordable Care Act pushed swiftly on Thursday for an appeal in the Supreme Court.
The opposing party filed a petition with Supreme Court several days after the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia, maintained a regulation enforced by the Obama administration that made subsidized insurance available to qualified consumers all over the country.
The decision by the Court of Appeals was one of the few issued on that very same day that led to conflicting conclusions on the legal aspects of the approach made by Obama.
The legal battle has major consequences on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act since the federal government is running a portion or all of insurance exchanges in most states.
Challengers omitted the opportunity to ask the court to reconsider its ruling, this time around, with more judges taking part so an appeal request is quickly made to the SC.
