Kavanaugh Pick Could Affect Future of Obamacare, Medicaid Work Requirements

Health care issues will be front and center during the upcoming Senate confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee for a pivotal seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. A number of important health care cases could make their way to the high court in the coming years, and Kavanaugh's vote could swing those decisions. They include a new Republican challenge to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act; a patient lawsuit against Medicaid work requirements; challenges to the Trump administration's cuts of ACA risk-corridor, risk-adjustment, and cost-sharing reduction payments to insurers; and lawsuits by Medicaid patients seeking the right to see the provider of their choice.
