Updated Trumpcare estimate: less savings, same number uninsured
The Congressional Budget Office released a new estimate of the impact of the American Health Care Act this afternoon, showing less federal savings than the original bill but roughly the same coverage loss over 10 years. It was updated to include the proposed amendments to the legislation that were released on Monday night, but not any of the additional changes the White House has been discussing with the Freedom Caucus.
- The bill would save $150 billion between 2017 and 2026. The original bill would have saved $337 billion.
- In 2018, 14 million people would lose coverage. This number would increase to 24 million in 2026. This number did not change.
