If the ruling is eventually considered and upheld by the Supreme Court, individuals purchasing insurance in states with federally-facilitated exchanges will be impacted. While it remains somewhat unclear how states implementing state-based exchanges but relying heavily on the federal government for exchange operations ( e.g. Idaho, New Mexico, Oregon, and Nevada) would be treated, consumers in a majority of states would be at risk.
