Federal judge rules against ACA’s preventive care requirements


Since its creation, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been subject to numerous legal challenges in state and federal courts. In the latest, Braidwood Management Inc. v. Becerra, a Texas federal district court judge ruled that a portion of the ACA’s preventive care requirement is unconstitutional. The judge issued this ruling on March 30, 2023, striking down the mandate to provide certain preventive care effective immediately on a nationwide basis.
