NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today applauded the U.S. Supreme Court for agreeing to review a case that seeks to repeal the entire Affordable Care Act (ACA) and put tens of millions of Americans’ health care at risk. The court agreed to review a recent Fifth Circuit decision that held the ACA’s individual mandate unconstitutional and called into question whether the remaining provisions of the law could still stand. Those important ACA provisions include guaranteed coverage for the 133 million Americans with pre-existing conditions, subsidies that help working families afford health coverage, investments in public health programs to prevent and combat public health threats like the opioid epidemic, and supporting lab capacity and immunization infrastructure for threats like novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
