Hoosier Schools Sue Over Obamacare

Fifteen Indiana school districts and the state of Indiana have filed a lawsuit challenging the federal health care law and subsidies that are available to Hoosiers under rules set by the IRS. The suit argues that Hoosiers should not qualify for tax subsidies for insurance purchased through the federally run health care exchange—or online marketplace —because the original law did not authorize them. The suit says the Affordable Care Act—known as Obamacare—only authorized subsidies for people who purchase insurance through state-based exchanges and Indiana did not create it’s own exchange. That was left up to the federal government. Many schools and other businesses have cut employee hours to under 30 so they aren’t required to provided insurance. The school districts are represented in the lawsuit by Bose McKinney & Evans, an Indianapolis law firm. The school corporations involved in the suit:

— Benton Community School Corporation

— Community School Corporation of Eastern Hancock County

— John Glenn School Corporation

— Madison Consolidated Schools

— Metropolitan School District of Martinsville

— Monroe-Gregg School District

— Mooresville Consolidated School Corporation

— North Lawrence Community Schools

— Northwestern Consolidated School District of Shelby County

— Perry Central Community Schools

— Shelbyville Central Schools

— South Henry School Corporation

— Southwest Parke Community School Corporation

— Southwestern Jefferson County Consolidated School Corporation

— Vincennes Community School Corporation
