The case is being brought by a group of 20 Republican state attorneys general and the governors of ME and Mississippi.
"The Republican-backed lawsuit that seeks to take away protections from people with pre-existing conditions makes the stakes as high as could be", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said at a news conference.
The Republican attorneys general say they still believe the entire law should be invalidated, but if that does not happen, they would accept the elimination of the preexisting condition protections.
Some 52 million adults age 18 to 64 - or 27 percent of this population - have pre-existing conditions that would have led to a denial of coverage in the individual market prior to the Affordable Care Act, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Six years ago, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. cited Congress' taxing authority in upholding the mandate, which was crafted to prod healthy people into the new marketplace.
The suit alleges that the health-care law is unconstitutional because of a recent change in federal tax law that will soon end a penalty for Americans who violate the law's requirement that most people carry health insurance. About six in 10 (62%) say a major reason for rising costs is due to the expense of new drugs, treatments, and medical technologies.
It's too early to say if the ACA's turnabout will be fleeting or more permanent. What's more, instead of defending access to health care on behalf of the American people, the Trump administration-the named defendant in the suit- is arguing that the court should strike down preexisting condition protections. The judge has previously blocked Obama-era efforts to extend medical leave protections to same-sex couples and to include gender-identity discrimination as a form of sex discrimination under the health law.
