ACA Lawsuit Threatens Free Preventive Care for Millions

Filed by a group of employers and individuals who object to providing certain preventive care or don’t want to pay for preventive care they feel isn’t necessary; Kelley v. Becerra argues that the ACA’s requirement for insurers and health plans is unconstitutional. If it succeeds, millions of Americans could lose access to all preventive care guaranteed by the ACA or be forced to pay out of pocket for these vital services. These vital screens include but are not limited to check-ups, screenings for blood pressure, colorectal cancer, cholesterol, type 2 diabetes for adults, STDs, lead, and autism screening.
