Brief Executive Summary
The Democratic staff of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform conducted an investigation into the potential effects of the Trump Administration's decision to no longer defend the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) in federal courts for people living in the District of Columbia. This report examines the repercussions an estimated 40,000 people in the individual market, living in the District of Columbia, may experience as a result of losing federal protections against coverage denials or premium increases as a result of their pre-existing health conditions, gender, or age.
