CBO Scores

  • Senate 'Repeal Only' Bill Would Leave 32 Million More Uninsured, CBO Says Politico by Adam Cancryn — A revived bill that would dismantle large parts of Obamacare without an immediate replacement would leave 32 million more people uninsured and double premiums over a decade, the Congressional Budget Office said in a report Wednesday. The nonpartisan scorekeeper's report projects that 17 million people would lose insurance in the first year after a partial repeal that includes ending Obamacare's Medicaid expansion and repealing most of the taxes tied to the law. Premiums would jump 25 percent over that same period as insurers grapple with the effective elimination of Obamacare's requirement that everyone purchase coverage.

  • Revised GOP Healthcare Bill Would Still Leave Millions Without Insurance, New Report Concludes Los Angeles Times by Noam Levey — The GOP plan analyzed by the budget office — one of multiple versions now being considered -- would still nearly double the number of people without health coverage over the next decade, pushing up the ranks of the uninsured by 22 million. And it would increase costs for millions of sick and elderly Americans, the budget office estimates. Those costs could soar even further under another provision of the bill that would allow insurers to offer slimmed down health plans that don't offer the basic set of health benefits currently mandated by Obamacare, such as prescription drugs, maternity care, and mental health services.
