WASHINGTON (WKOW) – Insurance experts say a misunderstanding about President Barack Obama's health care law could cloud the courts' deliberations.
The recent oral arguments left the impression that some of the justices and the lawyers appearing before them believe the law does not let consumers buy lower-cost, stripped-down coverage to satisfy its controversial requirement that most people carry health insurance.
The law does provide a "bronze" plan that costs less than comprehensive coverage. Several insurance experts said the bronze plan is similar to catastrophic insurance sold today.
