What happens if an individual mandate, an employer mandate, or single-payer health care is passed at the federal level—and if Missouri also passes the Health Care Freedom Act?
If there is a clash between federal law and the Health Care Freedom Act, there will be litigation. Of course, nothing will happen if whatever is passed in Congress does not require participation in a health system and does not forbid people from purchasing services outside of the system. But if one of the Health Care Freedom Act provisions is triggered, the federal government could file a lawsuit challenging it. Individuals who wish to violate the federal law by not purchasing federal health care could file a lawsuit challenging the federal law.
