This is headed to SCOTUS, ain't no 'bout adoubt it....that means next year at the earliest for oral arguments and likely no decision till 2016 at the earliest.  Until then, bidnez as usual.

The government is expected to appeal the ruling to the full D.C. Circuit, but even if the administration triumphs there, the case appears destined for the Supreme Court.

If I am not mistaken, the DC Circuit was recently stacked with regime appointees that could not be filibustered under the new Senate 'rules' so I expect the full court to reverse this.

It may take another Appeals Court (via another similar case making its way through) to rule in the same way as this three judge panel to get it to SCOTUS, and there is no guarantees on that.

I suspect that this ruling will be treated like it never happened and there will be no changes to the current 0care implementation.

I concur.  This regime will not be restricted from doing what ever it wants, and it will be a long time before SCOTUS can rule, IF they decide to take the case in the first place.  And since Chief Justice Roberts already rewrote the law once, there is no reason to think he won't do it again. 

Once something is done, it can be done again.

But about two hours later, a panel from the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 in a separate case that the subsidies are legal for people who buy plans on HealthCare.gov, which the federal government operates in 36 states.

Especially with a circuit split this will quite quickly find its way to the Supreme Court.

I'm a little surprised that the Fourth Circuit would go this way by 3-0.  Historically they haven't been quite that stupid.
