Health Care Reform Law Could be Headed to the Supreme Court

Posted: Updated:

The next stop for the troubled health care reform law could be the U.S. Supreme Court. 

At issue is a provision that requires employers of a certain size to offer insurance coverage for birth control and other reproductive health services. 

This is a constitutional issue for plaintiffs like craft store chain Hobby Lobby. Its owners say being forced to provide insurance coverage that includes "morning-after" pills goes against their Christian values, First Amendment rights and amounts to abortion. 

President Obama told supporters in San Francisco Monday night coverage will be available. We're now four days from his administration's self-imposed deadline to fix Healthcare.gov.  

The justices could announce Tuesday whether they will take up the case - one that has already split appeals courts across the country.

If they do so, we could see arguments next spring and a decision as late as June.
