Obamacare lawsuit threatens health care coverage for 2 million Floridians, and maybe millions more [Orlando Sentinel]

Gray Rohrer writes:

"No matter who wins the presidential election, health care coverage for nearly 2 million Floridians will be in jeopardy if the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down the Affordable Care Act.

That’s how many state residents bought health plans through the federal exchanges, most of whom receive federal subsidies they’d in danger of losing if the ACA were eliminated. The increased cost could price them out of the coverage.

'If the law is overturned, all that help will go away, [and] most likely people will no longer be able to afford their coverage,' said Anne Swerlick, senior policy analyst and attorney with the Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added], a progressive think tank based in Orlando.

And other provisions protecting those with pre-existing conditions and young adults who now can stay on their parents' policies would disappear, affecting potentially millions more."
