Washington, D.C. — Today, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling in the health care repeal lawsuit, striking down the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) individual mandate and remanding the case back to the North Texas District Court for further review of the severability of the law’s other provisions. The ACA has improved the health and financial security of tens of millions of Americans—including 135 million nonelderly Americans with preexisting conditions.
To better understand what is at stake in the health care repeal lawsuit and how 5th Circuit’s ruling inflicts immediate harm on the American health care system, the Center for American Progress is hosting a press call with state insurance commissioners.
