    BREAKING: CBO Released Its Estimate of the Revised AHCA

    May 24, 2017

    On May 24, 2017, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its estimate of the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA), which the House narrowly passed on May 4th. Among other things, the CBO estimates that 23 million Americans would lose health insurance coverage by 2026 than under current law. The report also states that about one-sixth of the population resides in areas in which the nongroup market would start to become unstable beginning in 2020 because states in those areas are likely to opt for waivers that would eliminate essential health benefit requirements and community-rated premiums. SCAI will continue to provide updates regarding future congressional healthcare reform efforts. For more on the CBO report, click here.
