American Health Care Act - What enacting the legislation would cost.

CBO and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) estimate that enacting the legislation—which would repeal or modify many provisions of the Affordable Care Act—would reduce federal deficits by $337 billion over the coming decade.

CBO and JCT estimate that in 2018, 14 million more people would be uninsured under the legislation than under current law. Later, after additional changes to subsidies for insurance purchased in the nongroup market and to the Medicaid program took effect, the increase in the number of uninsured people would rise to 21 million in 2020 and then to 24 million in 2026.
