Indiana Back In Court To Fight Federal Health Care Law

The new health care law would greatly expand Medicaid, much of which is funded by the state.

Indiana joins dozens of other states against the new program, which would make it illegal to be uninsured.

Indiana and 24 other states return to court June 8 in their effort to invalidate the Federal Health Care Law. The states filed their briefs late Wednesday with a federal appeals court in Atlanta.

The government is appealing a ruling that requiring the purchase of health insurance is unconstitutional. But the states have filed their own appeal.

The law dramatically expands Medicaid eligibility. States pick up much of the tab for that program.
