WASHINGTON - A US appeals court on Tuesday upheld a lower court decision that had dismissed a challenge to President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law and found the minimum coverage requirement was constitutional.

The US Appeals Court for the District of Columbia Circuit affirmed a lower court ruling that found requiring Americans to buy healthcare insurance coverage by early 2014 or face a penalty was constitutional and had dismissed a lawsuit challenging it.
