Texas Court Ruling Invalidating ACA Threatens Preexisting Illness Coverage, But It's Not The Final Word, Congress Says

Executive Summary

A Texas federal district court judge ruled late on Dec. 14 that all of the Affordable Care Act – including parts mandating coverage of preexisting conditions, the medical device excise tax and reporting by medtech firms of payments made to health-care providers under sunshine provisions – are invalid because the health-care law's individual mandate was struck down by a 2017 tax law. But Congress and legal experts say the ruling will be challenged.
