Gobeille v. Lib­erty Mu­tual In­sur­ance Co.:

The Supreme Court likely will is­sue a de­ci­sion in the spring. The is­sue is whether the fed­eral ERISA law shields an em­ployer with a self-funded em­ployee health plan from hav­ing to share health­care data with a state all-payer data­base de­signed to aid health­care re­form.

Zu­bik v. Bur­well:

The Supreme Court will de­cide whether re­li­gious not-for-profit groups that ob­ject to the ACA’s con­tra­cep­tion cov­er­age man­date can be re­quired to no­tify their third-party ad­min­is­tra­tors or HHS that they want to opt out so the gov­ern­ment can ar­range such cov­er­age.

Whole Woman’s Health v. Cole:

The Supreme Court will con­sider whether a Texas law that im­poses con­di­tions on abor­tion providers such as re­quir­ing the doc­tors to have ad­mit­ting priv­i­leges at lo­cal hos­pi­tals places an un­due bur­den on women’s con­sti­tu­tional right to get an abor­tion.

U.S. House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives v. Bur­well:

A fed­eral dis­trict judge will de­cide whether it was law­ful for the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion to fund the ACA’s pro­gram for re­duc­ing ex­change plan mem­bers’ out-of-pocket costs with­out Congress ap­pro­pri­at­ing money for that pur­pose.
