The Supreme Court’s decision on Friday to take up another ObamaCare challenge is the latest headache for a healthcare industry that has already struggled for years with complicated legal challenges to the law.

“I think it does create a cloud of uncertainty,” Elizabeth Carpenter, director of the healthcare consulting firm Avalere Health, told The Hill. “In some ways, stakeholders and key industry groups were beginning to kind of settle into some of the rhythms of the [Affordable Care Act], and certainly, this adds just another unknown variable.”
