AAFP, AMA: Congressional Budget Office report shows AHCA needs work

May 25, 2017

The presidents of AAFP and AMA have unleashed a new round of criticism regarding the American Health Care Act, the bill initiating the repeal of the Affordable Care Act that narrowly passed the House earlier this month.

The groups’ comments come after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and Joint Committee on Taxation released a report on Wednesday that indicated the House-passed version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) would leave 14 million more people uninsured than under the present law. According to the CBO report, that number would increase to 19 million by 2020 and to 23 million by 2026. The total number of uninsured in 2026 under the age of 65 would be 51 million based on CBO projections.
