Even if Obamacare is struck down by the Supreme Court, portions of the law are likely to survive across the country. Major and controversial parts of the law won’t go into effect until 2014 but others have already expanded benefits, The Washington Post reported.

Some 2.5 million young adults are now being covered by their parents’ health plans under federal rules. However, the provision has not proved controversial and some insurers volunteered to comply, Robert Zirkelbach, spokesman for America’s Health Insurance Plans, told the Post. Many states have also worked the rule into state law.

Other popular rules include banning lifetime limits on insurance payouts, prohibitions against dropping insurance coverage of those who are sick because of application inaccuracies, and requiring insurers to cover preventive measures such as mammograms and colonoscopies without charging co-pays or other fees, the Post reported.

Georgetown University’s Sabrina Corlette, who has studied the implementation of the healthcare law, said lawmakers are unlikely to undo  these rules in many states. “These are market reforms that are really very popular,” she told the Post.
