Congressional Budget Office Estimates of New Healthcare Act
On March 13, 2017, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released their report estimating the budgetary effects of President Trump's proposed alternative to the Affordable Care Act - the American Health Care Act.
Here are some of the COB's estimates:
Enacting the legislation would reduce federal deficits by $337 billion from 2017-2026.
In 2018 14 million more people would be uninsured.
In 2018 and 2019 average premiums for single policyholders in the non-group market would be 15 percent to 20 percent higher than under current law.
By 2026, average premiums for single policyholders in the non-group market under the legislation would be roughly 10 percent lower than under current law.
