A federal court in Minnesota has ruled that it is unlawful to deny insurance coverage for transgender health care under the Affordable Care Act and federal laws prohibiting sex discrimination. The case could have national implications. See Minnesota Judge: Federal Law Bars Denying Insurance Coverage for Transgender Medicine (Star Tribune, 9/21/18).

ACA Cost-Sharing Reductions
As reported by the New York Times (Ruling on Health Care Subsidies Could Prove Costly for Government, 9/22/18) a judge of the United States Court of Federal Claims ruled that a Montana insurer was entitled to payments from the federal government for providing insurance policies with reduced cost-sharing. The administration had halted these “cost-sharing-reduction” (CSR) payments to insurers last October, based on a lack of specific congressional funding for them, even though they are mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
