2014 ACA Tax Provisions 
In April, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) reminded taxpayers that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) contains tax provisions that affect 2014 income tax returns. The individual shared responsibility provision of the ACA requires all taxpayers to: 1) have qualifying health insurance coverage for each month of the year; 2) have an exemption from the requirement to have coverage; and 3) Make an individual shared responsibility payment when filing federal income tax return. Taxpayers enrolled in coverage through the Marketplace may be allowed the premium tax credit and must file new Form 8962 with their tax return to claim the credit and to reconcile any advance payments made on their behalf in 2014.

Public’s View of the Affordable Care Act
Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) recently released a newly-updated interactive tool which, according to a KFF email alert from May 11,  “allows users to explore five years' worth of detailed data capturing the public's views on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including breakouts by party identification, age, gender, race, and other characteristics.”  The email alert goes on to include that “the updated tool​ now makes it easier for viewers to explore, compare, and share trends in Americans' response to the question of whether their overall view of the health care law is favorable or unfavorable.”

 

 Legal News

 
​​​The US Supreme Court will take up the Affordable Care Act (ACA) again, and hear the legal dispute in King v Burwell, which challenges the financial resources available to enrollees on the federal insurance exchanges. At issue in this case is whether the precise language in the ACA makes subsidies available to all people in all states or only in those states run by their own health insurance exchanges.  Many Democratic-led states chose to set up their own exchanges; but Republican-led states, in a demonstration of their opposition, let the federal government do so instead. More than 4 million people receive subsidies currently, which the Obama administration contends are essential to the ACA by making insurance more affordable for low- and middle-income families. Without subsidies, health reform will begin to fall apart.  The US Supreme Court will likely rule on this issue by late June 2015. ​
