Modern Healthcare

House Republicans filed their long-awaited lawsuit Friday challenging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.The lawsuit, filed against the secretaries of HHS and the U.S. Treasury, contests President Barack Obama’s decision to waive the healthcare law’s employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it without first receiving Congressional approval for the change. That mandate will ultimately require companies with 50 employees or more to provide healthcare coverage to employees.
