On 6/28/2012, the United States Supreme Court issued their decision on the Affordable Care Act.
Here is a synopsis of how the Supreme Court ruled:
1. The entire ACA was upheld.
2. The Individual Mandate was ruled Constitutional, but individuals who refuse to comply would pay a tax.
3. The Medicaid provision (expansion) was limited but not invalidated.
4. Because the whole ACA was deemed constitutional, the provision requiring insurers to cover young adults until they are 26 survives as well.
