58.9 Million Projected to be Uninsured in 2019 if ACA Repealed

The Urban Institute recently published an analysis on the effects of a partial repeal of the Affordable Care Act through reconciliation. Here are some key findings from the report:

The number uninsured would rise from 28.9 million to 58.7 million in 2019.
The share of uninsured nonelderly people would increase from 11% to 21%.
82% of the people becoming uninsured would be in working families.
There would be 12.9 million fewer people with Medicaid/CHIP coverage in 2019.
State spending on Medicaid/CHIP would fall by $76 billion from 2019-2028.
The uninsured would seek $1.1 trillion in uncompensated care from 2019-2028.
