Appeals court ruling could impact Alabama insurance holders - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

Appeals court ruling could impact Alabama insurance holders

 Good Tuesday evening.

We are following what could be a huge blow for insurance coverage for thousands of Alabamians under the Affordable Care Act. An Appeals Court has ruled that federal subsidies that help low and middle income people pay their premiums can only be paid in states that have set up their own insurance exchanges. Since Alabama has not set up an exchange, this would impact nearly a 100,000 people living in this state. WAFF 48 Political Reporter Max Reiss will have more on what this means at 10.

Huntsville Animal Services is putting out an urgent plea for people to adopt or provide foster care for dogs there to help keep the dogs alive. All of the dogs are in danger after a serious virus was detected in that facility. Sarah Navoy will have more on what is being done to save the lives of those dogs.

And Rise School of Huntsville has partnered with the University of Alabama in Huntsville to improve the quality of early childhood education for eligible children with diverse abilities. We will have more on this unique and exciting program which could help students in terms of physical therapy, speech therapy and music therapy, among other things.

We hope you will join us for these stories and more at 10.
