ACA Repeal Would Increase The Number Uninsured by 81%

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recently released a prospective analysis on the outcome of repealing the Affordable Care Act. Here are some key findings from the report:

·         ACA repeal would increase the number of uninsured people by 24 million by 2021, or 81%.

·         81% of those losing coverage would be in working families, and 40% would be young adults.

·         There would be 14.5 million fewer people with Medicaid coverage in 2021.

·         9.4 million people who would have received tax credits for private coverage would receive no assistance.

·         State spending would increase by $68.5 billion between 2017 and 2026.

·         ACA repeal would reduce federal spending on health care for the nonelderly by $90.9 billion in 2021.
