Once again, the future of Obamacare is in the hands of the United States Supreme Court. This summer, the court’s interpretation of four words in the Affordable Care Act will have a significant impact on the future of the law. Many Americans are counting on millions of dollars of Obamacare federal tax credits to pay for health insurance coverage. The high court’s ruling will determine whether those credits will be offered or withdrawn to residents of 34 states, including Michigan.

Those are the states that opted not to create their own health insurance exchanges, instead implementing the federal government exchange.

To learn more about how this important matter might impact Ingham County residents, Current State guest host  Sue Carter talks with Robin Reynolds, Executive Director of the Ingham Health Plan. The plan provides insurance aimed at low-income residents and families who do not receive Medicaid, Medicare or other health benefits.
