What happens if there’s a partial repeal on Obamacare?

purchase-health-insurance-policyFrom the Urban Institute:

The number of uninsured people would rise from 28.9 million to 58.7 million in 2019, an increase of 29.8 million people (103 percent). The share of non-elderly people without insurance would increase from 11 percent to 21 percent, a higher rate of uninsurance than before the ACA because of the disruption to the non-group insurance market.

Of the 29.8 million newly uninsured, 22.5 million people would become uninsured as a result of eliminating the premium tax credits, the Medicaid expansion, and the individual mandate. The additional 7.3 million people would become uninsured because of the near collapse of the non-group insurance market.

And that’s just for starters. You can read the entire report, “Implications of a Partial Repeal of the ACA Through Reconciliation,”  here. And thanks, Leftover, for the link.

  1. “This scenario does not just move the country back to the situation before the ACA. It moves the country to a situation with higher uninsurance rates than before the ACA. To replace the ACA after reconciliation with new policies designed to increase insurance coverage, the federal government would have to raise new taxes, substantially cut spending, or increase the deficit.”

    There’s a lot of people in the media saying repeal, or a partial repeal through budget reconciliation, will never happen. Oddly enough, most of them are the same people who said Donald Trump would never get elected.
