The Supreme Court decision upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act means that the 2010 legislation intended to reshape an industry that constitutes one-sixth of the nation’s annual economy will continue apace.

“I think that one upshot of the Supreme Court’s opinion on Medicaid—with the prospect that some states may opt to not expand their Medicaid programs—is that it could create further pressure to rethink/delay,” Sinder said. “But, this is really just political conjecture; it is not driven by the text of the law in any way,” he cautioned.

Concerns over potential delays in implementing the centerpiece of PPACA are more practical than political, however.
