As a follow up to our Blog dated 10/21/14 (blog), earlier today, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to consider a challenge to the premium tax credits (subsidies) that are a key component of the ACA.  King v. Burwell challenges whether the tax credits apply only to consumer marketplaces established by a state or if they are applicable to federally operated sites as well.  It is anticipated that the case will heard in early March 2015.
