We reached out to our viewers through Facebook to find out what you still want to know about the health care law. Then we asked two local experts to weigh in.
Our first question comes from Anne Wright who asks: "Will my rates go up now to cover those who have to get it?"
We posed the question to Covenant Health Vice President of Finance John Geppi.
"If you're with your current employer, if they stay with their existing plan, your rates will go up as they have in the past. On the other hand, if your employer opts to go in to an insurance exchange, those rates have yet to be determined," said Geppi.
According to the federal government, insurance exchanges will kick in starting in 2014. They'll provide small businesses and people one place to compare health plans.
They say it will provide a more level playing field, offering people the coverage they need at better rates.
That leads us to our second question from Kristie Davis Dean. Kristie wants to know how much it will cost the average taxpayer who is now forced to buy the insurance or pay a penalty.
Geppi says right now, we just don't know. "We don't have that information today. One thing we do know, this will cost more than originally projected. Those costs, depending on what the states do, the Medicaid, whether they could opt in or opt out of the Medicaid program. There are other costs that will be associated with this down the road that we don't know. The devils in the details and certainly we haven't seen all the details yet."
Thursday the court rejected a mandatory expansion of Medicaid, saying the federal government can ask states to provide new benefits, but can't throw them out of the Medicaid system if they don't.
Many Affordable Care Act supporters hope that when the mandate completely takes affect the long waits, and the costs associated with backlogged emergency rooms will lessen.
Jack cross-posted this comment to Facebook thanking the Supreme Court for their decision.
He says "You won't have to wait hours to get emergency care since everyone will have insurance and can go to a doctor with an appointment."
But Summit Medical Group CEO Tim Young says that may not be true right away, since more people could now seek treatment.
"Keep in mind you also have coupled with this an aging population that is also demanding more services. But it's not the expectation that the expansion of those who are uninsured will then have to receive as they do today significant amount of their health care in an emergency room setting," said Young.
The Supreme Court's move angered many Republicans, including lawmakers here in Tennessee.
Representative Diane Black of Gallatin says she is a member of the Ways and Means Committee, and intends to work to repeal the law.
