If these decisions hold up through a potential appeals process, they could result in the federal government owing billions of dollars annually until Congress makes an explicit appropriation or otherwise changes the law.

Federal judges issued four new rulings late last week in favor of insurers who argue the government owes them cost-sharing reduction (CSR) payments under the Affordable Care Act despite the Trump administration’s 2017 decision to halt them abruptly.

Since one of the cases is a class action involving 91 insurers, the total number of insurers that have won their CSR cases is nearly 100. These cases could represent billions of dollars annually.
