Fate of Lewisville Health Insurance In Limbo As Court Decides To Expedite Lawsuit

Rick Thornton, a health insurance agent in Lewisville, Texas, says whether or not the state’s highest court decides to expedite widely-discussed Affordable Care Act Lawsuit depends on response from southern state lawmakers.

Health Insurance in Lewisville, Texas, and the future of the Affordable Care Act on a nationwide level now depends on how many southern state lawmakers respond to a request to expedite a lawsuit aimed at striking down the ACA. The high court gave southern states a deadline of 4 p.m. on Jan. 10 to respond to state lawmakers who have asked the high court to reverse the repeal on the ACA’s individual mandate from 2017 to see the ACA thrive. Southern state lawmakers are in no hurry to give other states favors, though it is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that they want to see the entire Affordable Care Act — not just the mandate — struck down and eliminated for good.

The Lewisville health insurance case is set to stretch past the November election, which is why lawmakers have petitioned to speed things up. The latest petitions insist that even though ACA survived the repeal of the individual mandate in 2017, its validity has been called into question ever since. If everything goes through quickly, a decision could be made by June.

Rick Thornton, a health insurance agent in Lewisville, said the reason why so many government officials want to spring into action with a ruling is twofold. Annual national spending is on pace to hit $6 trillion because of the costs for Medicare and private insurance — even as American use less care. On top of that, millions more Americans don’t have Lewisville health insurance compared to several years ago, and millions more who do have it can’t afford basic medication and services. There is also the fact that the average life expectancy has decreased sharply over the last three years. There could be a cost associated with doing nothing. But Thornton also says people should be wary of any decision that is handed down. The results will have consequences for patients, providers, and insurers nationwide.
