WASHINGTON (CNN) — The Supreme Court will review another controversial part of the healthcare reform law championed by President Barack Obama.

The justices announced Friday it will decide whether the IRS can impose regulations extending tax-credit subsidies to coverage purchased through health exchanges established by the federal government under Obamacare.

Oral arguments will be held next year, with a ruling by June.

The legal argument involves a provision in the health care law that says people who obtained coverage through state-run exchanges can get federal subsidies such as tax credits. But the law does not specifically say that those signing up on the separate federal exchange also are eligible. Opponents of the law contend that lack of specificity renders illegal the subsidies for anyone who enrolled through the federal exchange.

The case is King v. Burwell (14-114).
