SCOTUS drops opinions in 10-minute increments. 10:00, 10:10, 10:20, etc
In 1st decision:
The Court upholds HHS’s understanding of the “Medicare fraction.”
This is a pretty technical case, but the stakes were high for the hospitals that receive Medicare payments – potentially to the tune of billions of dollars.
In a case about how the Department of Health and Human Services calculates special Medicare payments to hospitals that serve a high percentage of low-income patients. And in particular, the case is a challenge to HHS’s interpretation of the phrases “entitled to” and “eligible for” to mean all patients who qualify for Medicare or Medicaid, even if those programs did not pay the patients’ hospital bills.
THE Supreme Court HAS OVERTURNED ROE v WADE!
