YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Three federal appeals court judges are expected to make a ruling soon on the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
On Monday, United States Senator Sherrod Brown hosted a discussion on it, with medical providers and others.
He’s concerned about the outcome once the judges’ ruling comes out.
The ACA benefitted from a mandate to get health insurance.
“If you’re insured and you’re young and you’re healthy, obviously that’s good for the whole system. I think we’ve mostly done that. This court case is going to strip a lot of that away,” Brown said.
More than 200,000 Ohioans got insurance last year through the ACA marketplace.
The roundtable was at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.
