If court says no: Insured would miss insurance subsidies
CHICAGO - Millions of Americans have a big personal stake in next Wednesday's Supreme Court challenge to the nation's health care law: Can they legally continue to get subsidies to help pay for their insurance? If the court says no, people in more than 30 states could lose the federal help.
They include Ariana Jimenez, a 23-year-old from suburban Chicago. She works part time as a nursing assistant and says without the subsidy she would have to cancel her coverage.
In Jackson, Mississippi, 31-year-old Kimberly Davis says she'd become uninsured and wouldn't be able to afford her medications that prevent flare-ups of her multiple sclerosis.
Others say they'd try to keep their insurance as long as possible by cutting other expenses.
