Right now, middle-income Americans across the country can get help from Washington when they’re out shopping for health insurance. But King versus Burwell, the latest Supreme Court challenge to ObamaCare, could change all that.

Here’s how people in as many as 37 states could be cut off. These are the states, mostly run by Republican Governors, whose citizens rely on the Federal Insurance Exchange. That means they rely on Washington both to shop for insurance and for tax credits to help pay for what they find. But seven words buried in Section 1401 of the Affordable Care Act could change things. The law says that federal tax credits should go to people who bought insurance through an exchange established by the state. Does that mean only people who live in states with exchanges can get the federal tax credits? That’s what the justices will decide.

If the court decides to limit federal tax credits, the result could essentially be the creation of two American healthcare systems. The have’s, in mostly Democratic states, may not be impacted. While the have-not’s in 37 mostly red states could face spiraling costs. Would it mean the death of President Obama’s entire landmark law? Probably not. But Americans could begin to have vastly different levels of access to care. It all depends on which America they happen to live in.
