Senate Bill Adds 22 Million Uninsured, Cuts Medicaid 26% — Hitting Poor Children, Children and Adults with Disabilities, and Nursing Home Residents

Highlights:

  • "The Senate bill would increase the number of people who are uninsured by 22 million in 2026 relative to the number under current law, slightly fewer than the increase in the number of uninsured estimated for the House-passed legislation. By 2026, an estimated 49 million people would be uninsured, compared with 28 million who would lack insurance that year under current law. (emphasis added)


  • "The largest savings would come from reductions in outlays for Medicaidspending on the program would decline in 2026 by 26 percent in comparison with what CBO projects under current law—and from changes to the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA’s) subsidies for nongroup health insurance.


  • "The largest increases in deficits would come from repealing or modifying tax provisions in the ACA that are not directly related to health insurance coverage, including repealing a surtax on net investment income and repealing annual fees imposed on health insurers.
