If multiple federal Appeals Courts issue differing opinions on the constitutionality of a federal statute (like with the federal healthcare law), what happens if the Supreme Court doesn't take the case?

Does the law apply only in different parts of the country (apply in jurisdictions that upheld and not in others)?
