On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will begin hearing oral arguments related to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka health reform).
The oral argument will run for more than six hours and span three days, as the Court considers issues related to the individual mandate (requiring everyone to have health insurance coverage), the Medicaid expansion (beginning in 2014, people with incomes at or below 133% of the federal poverty level would become eligible for free coverage), and severability (can the Court strike just one section of the law?)
All the briefs and related documents are online for your perusal.
Of particular interest to progressive moms are the amici (friend of the court) from the National Health Law Center arguing in favor of the Medicaid expansion and the brief from state legislators arguing in favor of minimum coverage protections.
