D.C. Circuit's move to rehear ACA case is good news for Alabama consumers

ACPP policy director Jim Carnes issued the following statement Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014, in response to news that the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit will reconsider a ruling that premium tax credits under the Affordable Care Act don’t apply to consumers in Alabama and other states that don’t operate their own health insurance marketplaces:

“Everyone deserves access to affordable health coverage, no matter where they live. The D.C. Circuit’s announcement today means that protection may end up being recognized once and for all despite all the arguments that have thrown it into doubt. Already, more than 80,000 Alabamians have qualified for tax credits to lower their insurance premiums under the Affordable Care Act, and thousands more will get financial help with new coverage this fall. Today’s action indicates there is a growing consensus that the ACA is here to stay.”
