This Term, in King v. Burwell, the Supreme Court considered whether the Affordable Care Act permits the government to extend tax-credit subsidies to citizens of states that have chosen not to establish their own insurance exchange. Prior to the ruling, it was clear that if the Court ruled that these subsidies were not permitted under the law, the fallout would be extensive and possibly devastating to state insurance markets, and countless local, state, and federal actors would have had to decide how to move forward.  At this conference, scholars and practitioners in the fields of law, public health, and economics evaluated the oral argument in the case, considered how the Court was likely to rule, and explored likely impacts of a decision against the government discussed groundwork for politically-viable fixes at all levels of public and private involvement in the event of such a ruling.
