U.S. District Court Blocks Missouri Restrictions on ACA Navigators
Timothy Jost, in Health Affairs Link to more items from this source
Jan. 23, 2014

"The court concluded that any law that frustrates the ACA's purpose by imposing additional burdens on federally designated counselors or threatening to punish them for performing their duties under the ACA is preempted.... Additional state licensure requirements obstruct and frustrate the federal government's operation of the federal exchange, and thus are unconstitutional.... [The] court concluded that 'any attempt by Missouri to regulate the conduct of those working on behalf of the' federal exchange is preempted. Missouri can establish its own exchange if it wants to, but cannot impede the operation of the federal exchange." St. Louis Effort for AIDS, et al. v. John Huff, Dir. of the Missouri Dept. of Insurance, No. 13-4246-CV-C-ODS (W.D. Mo. Jan 23, 2014)]
