Latest Senate ACA repeal bill would lead to 22 million more uninsured


The CBO released an analysis of this idea on Wednesday, projecting that 32 million people would lose insurance by 2026 as the individual insurance market descended into chaos. The CBO estimates that $51 billion of the $70 billion in additional stabilization funding would be spent over the ten-year period; the remainder would be spent after 2026.

Private health insurance companies have been increasingly refusing to provide coverage in certain parts of the country that are deemed unprofitable under ACA restrictions, leading to 31 percent of counties in the United States having only one option to choose from in the ACA marketplace, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, but the CBO predicts more counties would have fewer options under the repeal bill.

"CBO and JCT [Joint Committee on Taxation] estimate that enacting this legislation would reduce federal deficits by $420 billion over the coming decade and increase the number of people who are uninsured by 22 million in 2026 relative to the number under current law", the report stated.

The benchmark deductible would equal half the income of someone making $26,500, as opposed to 3 percent under current law. Even with the new score, CBO did not have time to analyze an amendment added to the Senate bill by Sen.

The new analysis is another blow to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who added $70 billion in additional funding meant to help shore up the existing markets in the hopes it would improve the long-term impacts of the bill. "Not everyone is made of money and can support themselves through the insurance that costs so much. We have to have a responsible replacement". Four Republicans came out against it by Monday, leaving McConnell without the necessary majority he needed to advance the bill.
