News about Today’s Supreme Court Ruling on King v. Burwell

Posted June 25, 2015

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the federal rule making subsidies available to eligible individuals through federally facilitated Health Insurance Marketplaces, like the one in Illinois. This means that health insurance subsidies will continue to be available on these Marketplaces. Existing policies remain in effect. 

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) is reviewing the Supreme Court’s decision. We will share any additional information as we learn more. 

BCBSIL will remain focused on providing an array of affordable products and services to our members and the market. We also will continue to lead on patient-centered health care delivery reforms that promote innovation, value and high-quality care for our members.
