2 Tpics t Discuss Status f Supreme Curt PPACA case Elder Justice Act and "Suspicius" Crimes Update n Accuntable Care Organizatins

3 Status f PPACA Supreme Curt Case

4 Curt Challenges Within minutes f President Obama signing PPACA, 20 states, including Indiana, tw private citizens and the Natinal Federatin f Independent Business filed a cmplaint seeking declaratry judgment and injunctive relief challenging the cnstitutinality f the law Six states later jined the lawsuit

5 Curt Challenges (Cnt d)

6 Curt Challenges (Cnt d) On January 31, 2011, Senir Judge Rbert Vinsn issued a declaratry judgment finding PPACA uncnstitutinal Key Findings Individual mandate, which beginning in 2014 wuld require Americans, with certain limited exceptins, t purchase apprved health insurance r pay a mnetary penalty, exceeded Cngress authrity under the Cmmerce Clause Individual mandate and remaining prvisins are all inextricably bund tgether in purpse and must stand r fall as a single unit Since the individual mandate cannt be severed frm the Act, entire Act is uncnstitutinal

7 Curt Challenges (Cnt d) U.S. Curt f Appeals fr the Sixth Circuit (Cincinnati, Ohi) On June 29, 2011, a divided 6 th Circuit panel (2-1) declared the individual mandate t be a valid exercise f cngressinal authrity under the cmmerce clause The curt said that the individual mandate is a regulatin n the activity f participating in the natinal market fr health care delivery, and specifically the activity f self-insuring fr the cst f these services Cngress had a ratinal basis t believe that the individual mandate has substantial effects n interstate cmmerce

8 Curt Challenges (Cnt d) U.S. Curt f Appeals fr the Eleventh Circuit (Atlanta, Gergia) On August 12, 2011, a divided 11 th Circuit panel (2-1) declared that the individual mandate exceeded Cngress pwers under the Cmmerce Clause and was uncnstitutinal; but, the curt did nt strike dwn all f PPACA, as the lwer curt had dne Majrity said Cngress culd d many things under the Cmmerce Clause, but it culd nt mandate that individuals enter int cntracts with private insurance cmpanies fr the purchase f an expensive prduct frm the time they are brn until the time they die Such a mandate is unprecedented, lacks cgnizable limits, and imperils ur federalist structure Individual mandate is severable

9 Curt Challenges (Cnt d) U.S. Curt f Appeals fr Furth Circuit (Richmnd, Virginia) On September 8, 2011, a 4 th Circuit panel threw ut a pair f cases challenging the cnstitutinality f PPACA ruling fr varying reasns that the plaintiffs did nt have legal standing t bring their claims Tw f the 3 judges vlunteered that they wuld have upheld the law if they had been able t rule n the substance f the cases U.S. Curt f Appeals fr D.C. Circuit On Nvember 8, 2011, a panel upheld the Act n a 2-1 vte Majrity pinin written by a judge with a cnservative reputatin

10 Curt Challenges (Cnt d) Rather than appeal t full circuit in any f these cases, the Obama Administratin petitined the Supreme Curt in late September t hear the 11 th Circuit decisin Imprtant plitical decisin Ultimately, the U.S. Supreme Curt decided t accept Cert. n the 11 th Circuit Case

11 Supreme Curt Review In granting certirari, the Curt identified fur areas fr ral argument As an initial inquiry, des the litigatin n the Act vilate the Anti- Injunctin Act? Is the individual mandate cnstitutinal? Is the individual mandate severable frm the Act? Is the Medicaid expansin cntained in the Act cnstitutinal? Oral arguments were held March 26-28, 2012 Very uncertain as t hw the Curt will rule The Curt will likely issue a decisin by June, 2012

12 Oral Arguments: Anti-Injunctin Act The initial ral argument in the Curt's cnsideratin f the Act dealt with the federal Anti-Injunctin Act (the AIA) Generally, the AIA requires that a persn must first pay a federal tax and then sue fr a refund rather than seek an injunctin t prevent the cllectin f the tax in the first place Althugh, neither f the parties tk this psitin n appeal, the Curt tk up the issue and appinted an experienced appellate attrney t argue the applicability f the AIA t this litigatin

13 Oral Arguments: Anti-Injunctin Act In shrt, the gvernment, the states and the private individuals all agree n the utcme; the Curt shuld cnsider the Act challenges and d s nw and nt later It remains t be seen whether the Curt agrees If the Curt takes psitin that the individual mandate penalty is a tax fr AIA purpses, then n curt will have jurisdictin t hear the case until after the tax has been assessed, likely in 2015

14 Oral Arguments: Individual Mandate Beginning in 2014, the individual mandate requires mst individuals in the United States t maintain "minimum essential cverage" (i.e., health insurance cverage with certain minimum prescribed benefits) Fr any mnth in which this minimum cverage is nt maintained, a penalty is assessed against such individual based n the individual's husehld incme, which is filed with the individual s incme tax return

15 Oral Arguments: Individual Mandate The Act s challengers cntend that the individual mandate is nt a valid exercise f Cngress' legislative pwers, and have centered their arguments n three cnstitutinal prvisins: the Cmmerce Clause, the Necessary and Prper Clause and the Taxing Pwer Cmmerce Clause. The states and individuals cntend that the Act exceeds the bunds f Cngress authrity under the Cmmerce Clause, as the individual mandate attempts t regulate the health care market by requiring individuals t participate in a separate market, specifically the insurance market The gvernment defends the actin by fcusing n the intercnnectedness between the tw markets, explaining that health insurance is the primary financing mechanism t pay fr health care. Uninsured participatin in the health care market causes cst shifting and significant distrtin in the insurance market Ultimately, the decisin f the Curt is likely t hinge n whether the gvernment was able t cnvince the justices that uphlding the individual mandate will nt lead dwn a slippery slpe t a federal gvernment with unlimited pwer t regulate individual cnduct, r, as many pundits have psited, a federal gvernment that can require everyne t buy brccli

16 Oral Arguments: Individual Mandate Tax Due t Cngress brad authrity t lay and cllect Taxes and despite the fact that the Obama administratin has always taken the psitin the Act des nt impse new taxes, in supprting the cnstitutinality f Act the gvernment has taken the psitin that the individual mandate paired with the penalty perates as a tax. The gvernment argued that because the nly enfrcement mechanism fr the individual mandate is the penalty, the tw prvisins are inseparable, and in substance perate as a tax. The states and the individuals cunter by pinting ut that the individual mandate and the penalty are separate prvisins f the Act, the applicability f the individual mandate is much wider than the applicability f the penalty and Cngress specifically chse nt t characterize this as a tax Necessary and Prper In supprting the Act, the gvernment finally cntends that the health care regulatins fund in the Act, including the individual mandate, are necessary and prper fr carrying int executin its pwer t regulate interstate cmmerce, specifically, the health care market On the cntrary, in the states' and the individuals' cllective view, the necessary and prper clause nly grants Cngress the pwer t act in ways which are "cnsist[ent] with the letter and spirit f the Cnstitutin" and, they cntend that the individual mandate is nt cnsistent

17 Oral Arguments: Severability In the event the individual mandate is fund t be uncnstitutinal, a significant issue faced by the Curt is whether the rest f the Act is severable The gvernment argues that the Act shuld stand (with the exceptin f the guarantee issue and cmmunity rating prvisins, which it cncedes are inextricably tied t the mandate in rder t avid adverse selectin prblems). The gvernment supprts its psitins with several pints: the lin s share f the Act has nthing t d with the individual mandate; many prvisins f the Act are already in effect and nt related t the individual mandate; and the wrd essential was cnspicuusly left ut f the Titles f the Act that address these ther whlly unrelated prvisins. Ultimately, the gvernment argued that Cngress culd nt pssibly have intended the extrardinary disruptin that cmplete inseverability wuld have n the ther prvisins

18 Oral Arguments: Severability On the ther hand, the states and individuals argue that the entire Act shuld be invalidated because the individual mandate was the heart f the Act. All f the ther prvisins, they argue, were included t strike a balance between the prvisins designed t ensure a supply adequate t meet the demand created by the mandate. On the demand side, the petitiners argue that Cngress enacted the individual mandate t frce all individuals int the insurance market in rder t expand the risk pl and lwer csts fr insurers On the supply side, the petitiners argue that Cngress enacted a series f measures t guarantee that everyne wuld have affrdable insurance cverage available t them Petitiners pint t the text f the Act which deemed the mandate essential t the regulatry scheme it intended t create. Petitiners argue that even seemingly unrelated aspects f the Act all wrk tgether t achieve Cngress' gal f near-universal cverage because these prvisins and the series f revenue ffsets they create are part f the delicate fiscal balance that the Act was designed t achieve.

19 Oral Arguments: Severability Ultimately, the challenge t the severability f the individual mandate prvisin frm the rest f the Act is fundamentally a questin f cngressinal intent Wuld Cngress have intended the entire Act t fall if the individual mandate is fund uncnstitutinal? Justice Ginsburg qualified the Curt s decisin as a chice between a wrecking peratin and a salvage jb

20 Oral Arguments: Medicaid Expansin The states are als challenging the cnstitutinality f the Medicaid expansin fund in the Act One f the Act s key elements fr achieving near universal health care cverage is the significant expansin f the existing Medicaid prgram t all adults under 65 years f age with incmes up t 133 percent f the federal pverty level The basic questin presented t the Curt is whether the expansin represents an uncnstitutinally cercive use f Cngress' spending pwer

21 Oral Arguments: Medicaid Expansin While the gvernment has always enjyed the right t attach cnditins t the use f federally apprpriated funds, the states cntend that the use f cntinued Medicaid participatin as leverage fr the expansin amunts t impermissible ecnmic cercin Specifically, the states maintain that the take it r leave it apprach in the cntext f Medicaid, a prgram states have cme t rely n, is uncnstitutinally cercive The gvernment respnded that, by definitin, n cercin may exist where the states are given a vluntary chice t accept federal funds. The gvernment recgnized that althugh fr sme states it may be a plitically difficult chice, such difficulty is nt a matter f cnstitutinal cnsequence

22 Reprting "Suspicius" Crimes

23 Reprting Reasnable Suspicin f a Crime in a Lng-Term Care Facility Sectin 1150B f the Scial Security Act as established by Sectin 6703(b)(3) f PPACA June 12, 2011 CMS memrandum t State Survey Agency Directrs Revised August 12, 2011 t include Questins and Answers dcument Revised again n January 20, 2012
