NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- President Barack Obama has been scheduled to visit Middle Tennessee on Wednesday.

According to reports, a White House official said the president planned to discuss how the nation can continue to build on progress made under the Affordable Care Act, which has helped more than 16 million Americans gain health insurance.

It was unclear whether Obama would speak in Nashville or somewhere else nearby in Middle Tennessee.

Democratic U.S. Representative Jim Cooper issued a statement saying he's pleased the president is coming back to the area. It would be Obama's third visit to Middle Tennessee in the past year and a half.

The trip followed a 6-3 U.S. Supreme Court decision this past week in favor of the Obama administration in the battle over tax credit subsidies for health insurance as part of the health care law.
