FierceHealthcare

While GOP senators continue to labor over their version of a healthcare policy overhaul, prognosticators are not yet finished analyzing the version of the American Health Care Act passed by the House.

In a memo released Tuesday, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Office of the Actuary estimates that the House’s bill will increase the number of uninsured individuals by 12.6 million by 2026, relative to current law.

That estimate is 10 million lower than what the Congressional Budget Office projected. The CBO said that by 2026, the American Health Care Act would increase the number of uninsured individuals by 23 million.
