Amicus: California v. Trump, Northern District of California

Executive Summary

The National Health Law Program filed an amicus brief in support of California, urging the Court to require the federal government to make the cost sharing reduction payments (CSRs) required by the Affordable Care Act.

The amicus brief describes the immediate, harmful, and irreparable effects on consumers of the federal administration’s decision to terminate funding of cost-sharing reductions. The funding goes directly to insurers to cover the costs of providing low- and moderate-income consumers with legally required reductions to deductibles and other cost-sharing for covered health services

The brief also describes how the administration’s decision to end the CSR payments is the most recent, and consequential step in a concerted effort by the Trump administration to undermine the Affordable Care Act.
