On March 2, 2020, the Supreme Court announced that it will review a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit that found the individual mandate of the ACA – and possibly other provisions of the ACA – are unconstitutional. The Court will take up TX v. US during its October 2020 term. As such, the Court will not likely issue its own decision until after the November 2020 elections.
The ACA is still in force and plan sponsors should continue to comply with the various mandates imposed by the law. We will continue to follow any developments as this case makes its way through the appeals process.
