5 updates on legal challenges against Trump's health policies

Here are five major lawsuits that the Trump administration is battling in court over its policies, according to The Hill:

1. Medicaid work requirements: In a March 27 ruling, U.S. District Judge James Boasberg blocked Kentucky from implementing work requirements for Medicaid recipients and stopped Arkansas from continuing its Medicaid work requirement program.

2. Contraception mandate: Lawsuits have been filed to halt a Trump administration rule allowing employers to not provide contraception through health plans on moral or religious grounds.

3. Association health plans: U.S. District Judge John Bates ruled March 28 that the Trump administration's move to loosen regulations around association health plans doesn't comply with the ACA.

4. Short-term health plans: Lawsuits have been filed against the Trump administration's short-term health plan regulation.

5. ACA: In a March 25 court filing, the Department of Justice said it supports a judge's ruling that the entire ACA should be invalidated.
