ABSTRACT
The article looks at questions raised in a legal challenge to the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in the U.S. On June 8, 2011, a three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals discussed increased rates of health insurance and lower healthcare costs. The constitutionality of provisions requiring Americans to buy a private insurance product was challenged by the plaintiffs. The urgency of reducing the annual uncompensated care was also questioned by Judge Frank Hull.
