In January, Michigan and four other states asked a federal court to allow the state to join a coalition of 17 states, lead by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, to defend the Affordable Care Act (ACA) against a lawsuit filed by Republican Attorneys General. A judge in Texas filed a ruling in December that the ACA is unconstitutional because it can’t stand without the individual mandate penalty, repealed by a Republican-majority Congress in 2018. “The Affordable Care Act provides important protections — including protecting people with pre-existing conditions — for hundreds of thousands of residents in Michigan,” Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said. The ACA has provided insurance coverage for 1.2 million Michiganders. In 2013, the ACA became law, 11% of Michiganders were uninsured, which is down to 5.2% today
