Modern Healthcare

The U.S. Supreme Court decision on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is not expected to affect the ratings or outlooks of healthcare companies, analysts at Fitch Ratings said.

The Supreme Court will hear three days of oral arguments, totaling a monumental six hours, starting March 26. Although there are several distinct issues at hand, chief among them is whether the government can require U.S. citizens to buy health insurance.
