individual mandate

The federal  Affordable Care Act  is aimed at getting more Americans insured. To do that, people are required to carry health insurance or pay a fine. Those fines will begin popping up next year, and some tax filing groups are trying to help people examine their options for becoming insured and avoiding the penalty.

The U.S. Supreme Court has concluded its third and final day of arguments in the Florida-led challenge to the federal healthcare overhaul law. Lynn Hatter reports the court took up the issue of whether the law can survive without the central requirement that most Americans carry insurance, and whether the expansion of the Medicaid program is coercive.
