On June 28, 2012, the Supreme Court upheld most of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius (NFIB)
. While the Court upheld the ACA’s significant Medicaid expansion, it limited the federal government’s enforcement authority if a state fails to implement the expansion—a move that is already raising questions for Medicaid programs nationwide.
NHeLP’s Medicaid Expansion Toolbox serves as a one-stop resource center for health advocates and states trying to make sense of the Court’s decision, implications for Medicaid and policy considerations moving forward. If you want to share with other advocates fact sheets, reports, or other materials on Medicaid expansion in your state, please email Wayne Turner at email@example.com.
