Federal government asks court to scrap challenge to Medicaid work requirements

Justices seek government’s views in antitrust case

The Supreme Court issued orders on Monday from the justices’ private conference on Dec. 4. The justices had already granted two new petitions for review, involving the legality of Medicaid work requirements, from that conference on Friday, so it was no surprise that the justices did not add any new cases to their merits docket for the term. The justices called for the views of the U.S. solicitor general in Comcast v. Viamedia, an antitrust dispute in which Viamedia alleges that Comcast monopol...

Justices agree to review legality of Medicaid work requirements

The Supreme Court announced on Friday afternoon that it would weigh in on the legality of the Trump administration’s approval of Medicaid work requirements in Arkansas and New Hampshire. In a brief order, the justices granted review in Azar v. Gresham and Arkansas v. Gresham and consolidated the cases for one hour of oral argument. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in February that the approval should be thrown out. The court ruled that, in green-lighting the w...

Argument analysis: ACA seems likely to survive, but on what ground?

After roughly two hours of oral argument in the Supreme Court on Tuesday, it appeared likely that the Affordable Care Act will survive yet another effort in the courts to dismantle it. Although there may be five votes to strike down the ACA’s individual mandate – the provision in the law that directs virtually all Americans to buy health insurance – a majority of the court in California v. Texas seemed to agree with the ACA’s defenders that even if the mandate is unconstitutional, the rest of th...

Case preview: Justices will consider constitutionality of ACA’s individual mandate again

This article is the first entry in a symposium previewing California v. Texas. Since Congress passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010, the Supreme Court has reviewed six cases testing various parts of the law or the regulations that flow from it. One week after Election Day, the court will hear oral argument in a seventh. The newest challenge, California v. Texas, will be the second time the justices review the constitutionality of the ACA’s individual mandate – the requirement that virtually all...

October Term 2020 and the specter of (a lot of) mootness

Recent discussions of the Supreme Court’s upcoming term have understandably focused on the implications of the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — and the seemingly inevitable confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to succeed her. At least some of that commentary, in turn, has raised the possibility of the court being called upon to potentially resolve the presidential election, or at least high-profile cases relating to it. But the election looms over the upcoming term in at least one other...

Petitions of the week: Title VII for the military, Medicaid work requirements and more

This week we highlight cert petitions pending before the Supreme Court that ask the court to assess, among other things, whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects uniformed servicemembers and whether Medicaid coverage for certain beneficiaries can be tied to work or other requirements. In Jackson v. Braithwaite, a Black man who served in the Marines sued under Title VII, claiming that he was denied promotions and training opportunities because of his race. The U.S. Court of Appe...

Can the coronoavirus finally get Ohio's bipartsan criminal justice reforms over the finish line?

The question in the title of this post is prompted by this new Fox News piece headlined "Ohio lawmakers hope for bipartisan reform of prison system stressed by COVID-19." Here are excerpts from a long piece: Ohio lawmakers, lobbyists and researchers of various political stripes are finding a common cause in prison reform.  Bipartisan efforts to reform the troubled system have preceded the outbreak of COVID-19, but the virus has thrown the need for change into stark relief. Across Ohio’s prison ...

As national COVID-19 cases top 1000, insurers waive treatment fees and U.S. preps stimulus

The number of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. crossed 1,000 on Tuesday as President Donald Trump met with the nation’s largest insurers and members of his cabinet to discuss how to pay for treatment and lessen the financial blow of the disease’s spread. With the nation’s healthcare apparatus beginning to get a better understanding of the proliferation of the virus that causes COVID-19 within its borders, efforts have shifted fully from containing the disease’s spread to stopping the contagion from ge...

Ohio legislators predict more talk, but no likely action, on state's dormant death penalty

As regular readers know, Ohio has not had an execution in over 18 months and Gov Mike DeWine has repeatedly delayed scheduled executions because of concerns about the state's execution drugs.  This stalemate has led to some talk of legislative repeal, but this local news story, headlined "Ohio lawmakers unlikely to address state’s death-penalty problems soon," suggests that both executions and repeal are unlikely in the near future: Ohio legislative leaders indicated Tuesday that they will like...

Decade in review: The court upholds Obamacare

On March 23, 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law. The law was almost immediately challenged in federal court, leading to three days of oral argument at the Supreme Court in March of 2012. And as if the stakes weren’t already high enough, the justices were expected to issue their decision in the middle of the presidential campaign. One crucial question before the justices involved the constitutionality of the “individual mandate,” the requir...

As health insurance rates continue to rise, some turn to a new model for care

By Nicole Hayden, USC Center for Health Journalism Collaborative To anyone looking at Laura Campbell’s life from the outside, it might be hard to see any sign of strain. She lives in a nice neighborhood in Huntington Beach and works for a small publishing company. She took an end-of-summer road trip with her kids. But for the widowed mom of teenage twins, health coverage is just out of reach. The company she works for is not obligated to provide health benefits and doesn’t do so, and she thinks ...

What Is Medicare?

Medicare covers a lot, but many older Americans who enroll in the health care program need other insurance as well. Some people 65 and older still work and have access to their employer’s health benefits. Others can still access health benefits during retirement. Still, others qualify for veterans benefits or even Medicaid — all while still qualifying for Medicare benefits. When you have several layers of insurance coverage available, how do you know which plan should be paying for which service...

Argument preview: Justices to decide whether dismissal as untimely of Supplemental Security Income claimant’s request for review is final decision subject to judicial review

After a hearing, an administrative law judge denied Ricky Lee Smith’s application for supplemental security income benefits based on disability. The ALJ’s decision was dated March 26, 2014, and under the agency regulations, Smith was required to request review of the ALJ’s decision by the Appeals Council within 60 days of receiving the decision. Smith’s counsel alleges that he timely requested review of the ALJ’s decision. The Social Security Administration, however, has no record of receiving...

"I think I'm going to switch over to Hickenlooper."

I say out loud, as I'm reading "John Hickenlooper, Former Colorado Governor, Declares Candidacy for President" (NYT). Last December, as you may know, I suddenly said — also out loud — "Why aren't the Democratic candidates better? I'm just going to be for Amy Klobuchar."But I've been worried about Amy. There was that comb-as-a-fork business, and just yesterday I was thinking there are too many Senators in the race, and I think we need a governor. There's Jay Inslee, but I'm thinking he's all abou...

"[T]he hallmark of fanatical centrism is the determination to see America’s left and right as equally extreme, no matter what they actually propose."

"Thus, throughout the Obama years, centrists called for political leaders who would address their debt concerns with an approach that combined spending cuts with revenue increases, offer a market-based health care plan and invest in infrastructure, somehow never managing to acknowledge that there was one major figure proposing exactly that — President Barack Obama. And now, with Democrats taking a turn that is more progressive but hardly radical, centrist rhetoric has become downright hysterical...

"Outside Mr. Walker’s Capitol office, protesters marched and drummed and chanted fury at what they saw as an effort to weaken unions and diminish Democrats."

"But Mr. Walker pushed through the measure, survived a recall election and went on to guide Wisconsin on a conservative path, adopting a concealed-carry law, expanding private school vouchers, enacting so-called right-to-work legislation, passing voter identification rules and setting work rules for Medicaid recipients....
