Two Federal Courts Make Opposite Rulings On Healthcare Subsidies
(Undated) -- Two federal appeals courts are issuing opposite rulings on health insurance subsidies. One ruling in Washington, DC rejected insurance subsidies for coverage on federally-run health insurance exchanges. The ruling said the subsidies can only be paid through state-run exchanges. However, a court in Richmond, Virginia later upheld all the subsidies. Three-dozen states rely on the federal government to run the new health insurance exchanges.
