Oklahoma Files New Lawsuit Challenging PPACA

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is back in court. 

On Wednesday, Oklahoma’s Attorney General Scott Pruitt filed an amended complaint challenging PPACA’s individual mandate provision and new IRS regulations put in place to implement the law.  Oklahoma was one of 26 states that sought to have PPACA declared unconstitutional in this summer’s Supreme Court case.  Ultimately, the Supreme Court largely upheld the majority of PPACA.
