What is next for health reform? If the U.S. Supreme Court rules favorably on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, will states move forward with establishing required health insurance exchanges?

M2 Health Care Consulting analyzed state legislative activity, funding allotments and statements from policymakers to assess the likelihood of whether each state will move forward with a health insurance exchange. The analysis is available for free in an interactive report format by clicking here.

While 15 states have enacted legislation to create an Exchange, more than half of states have not. “Despite a general sense that a majority of states are against health reform, our analysis found only 6 states were likely not to move forward to create an exchange on their own if the law is upheld by the Supreme Court,” said Brenda Gleason, President of M2 Health Care Consulting.

Zane Benefits provides businesses with comprehensive and flexible alternatives to traditional health insurance. So health reform is right up their alley. Yesterday, Zane Benefits founder Paul Zane Pilzer presented a webinar on the history and future of small business health insurance. In it, Mr. Pilzer outlined four possible outcomes for the upcoming Supreme Court ruling.

Paul Zane Pilzer, author of The New Health Insurance Solution, is a world-renowned economist, a highly successful social entrepreneur, an adjunct professor, and the author of nine best-selling books and dozens of scholarly publications.

FOUR POSSIBLE OUTCOMES OF HEALTH INSURANCE REFORM

1) Uphold Entire ACA

For this to happen, 1 of 5 Republican Justices (for example, Roberts or Kennedy) would have to side with President Obama and the Democratic party. If this were to happen, the entire presidential election will be centered around Romney vs Obama on the topic of repealing health reform.

2) Invalidate Part of ACA

Under this scenario, the Supreme Court would remove the individual health insurance mandate. Both sides agree that they must then invalidate Guaranteed Issue since only unhealthy would purchase insurance.

3) Reject Entire ACA

Under this theory, congress wouldnt have passed the bill without all its major provisions (e.g. Guaranteed Issue + Mandate + Federal Subsidies + Exchanges). In other words, without the Mandate, the bill never would have been passed.

4) Postpone Ruling Until 2015

The logic here is that the individual mandate must have taken effect (post-2014) to have a valid claim before the U.S. Supreme Court. If so, the bill might stand until 2015 or might postpone implementation.
