THE SUPREME COURT will rule Thursday on whether President Obama's signature national health-care law is constitutional.
The decision of the nine justices will have huge ripple effects for health care across the country, including here in Philadelphia and around the state.
An estimated 1.37 million Pennsylvania residents — about 11 percent — are uninsured.
Republican Gov. Tom Corbett, as state attorney general in 2010, joined a group of state officials in challenging the law. Still, Pennsylvania is working to set up a health-insurance exchange required by the law, although the state Insurance Department says that it is waiting for the Supreme Court's decision before it touches a $33 million grant it won in January to build out the exchange.
