A Closer Look at the Medicaid Holding in NFIB v Sebelius

This implementation brief from HealthReformGPS examines exactly what the Court held in its Medicaid ruling and discusses the significance of the majority conclusion, as well as the key implementation questions that arise in the wake of this opinion.
