This is so new that it's unclear what effect it will have on 2019 sign-ups for insurance, but this is definitely something that could negatively affect a great deal of people who depend on ACA provisions to afford health care coverage for themselves and their families.

As usual, look to your state and individual health insurance organizations to find out the latest updates on how you and your family may be impacted by any sudden changes in the ACA rulings.
