CBO: Republicans' AHCA Would Leave 23 Million More Uninsured

Irune Rengel | 25 May, 2017, 08:11

The CBO also said the amendment offered by New Jersey's U.S. Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-3rd Dist.) that led to the bill's passage would make it harder for people with pre-existing conditions to get health insurance.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO), a non-partisan congressional group which scores budgetary legislation, said that the AHCA as it is would reduce the cumulative federal deficit by $199m (£153m) over the period to 2026.

But Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a top House Republican who voted for the American Health Care Act earlier this month, said the report reinforces the GOP's "rescue mission" on health care.

The CBO's report also found that that some state markets could be destabilized, meaning it would be more costly for sicker people to purchase insurance; the options they could afford are so barebones that the CBO doesn't even consider them as insured.

The report estimates that premiums "would decline, on average" for people in the individual health-care market in states that choose to "narrow the scope" of so-called essential health benefits.

There's reportedly "an internal memo written by a senior NSA official" that describes Trump's conversation with Rogers. The president made the same request to Mike Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, the official said.

But many readers likely encountered CBO's tweet and were left with the false impression that repealing Obamacare would increase the number of people with health coverage. And the news doesn't appear to be good for House Republicans.

"Under Obamacare, premiums have more than doubled, and choices have dwindled to the point that many families have no options at all", House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) said in a statement on his website. Republicans who back the bill say premiums for insurance policies bought on the exchanges have climbed steeply since 2013.

Though it's considered unlikely, if the bill lacks sufficient savings, the House might have to revise the bill and vote again, which could be an ordeal for GOP leaders.

The bill the House narrowly passed on May 4 meets that test and would rewrite large portions of the Affordable Care Act, which Republicans have pledged to dismantle for more than seven years.

Another change would allow states to decide whether to require insurers to cover health benefits such as maternity care and prescription drugs that are mandatory under current law. In its March 13 estimate, the CBO predicted the AHCA would kick 24 million people off their health insurance over ten years and reduce deficits by $337 billion. Letting states get federal waivers so insurers could charge higher premiums for people with pre-existing medical conditions would mean those consumers would "ultimately be unable to purchase" comprehensive coverage at prices comparable to today's costs, "if they could purchase at all".

It also says the venue allowed "thugs" to remain on the premises to incite violence after the concert. An injured fan named Nathan Mitchell is also a party in the lawsuit.

Reaction on Wall Street was muted, with shares of hospitals affected by the cuts to Medicaid, like Community Health Systems, and health insurers specializing in Medicaid, such as Molina Healthcare MOH.N and Centene Corp CNC.N unchanged in light after-hours trading.

If that's the case, Schumer said, the House may need to change its bill and repass it in order for Senate Republicans, who have just 52 votes in the chamber, to use the filibuster-busting tool.

On the other issue that many Republicans have recently staked nearly everything, a reduction in individual insurance premiums, CBO found that after boosting premiums initially, Trumpcare would eventually reduce average premiums-in exchange for policies offering far fewer benefits.

"The agencies expect that premiums would be substantially higher than previously estimated for less healthy people in some states and somewhat lower for the healthier people in those states", the CBO said. Trump campaigned for president on a promise to improve health care.
