Last week, the Supreme Court began hearings regarding the constitutionality of the PPACA. Unum U.S. Senior Vice President and General Counsel Chris Collins released a summary of the major issues to be reviewed by the Court regarding the PPACA.
Likely the most discussed issue thus far has been the constitutionality of the individual mandate, followed by the question of whether or not the PPACA would continue to stand if the individual mandate is deemed unconstitutional. The Court will also need to determine if the case can be decided before 2014 when the “tax penalty” goes into effect.
