CBO Estimates Incorporating Manager’s Amendment To American Health Care Act

CBO and the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) have prepared an estimate of the direct spending and revenue effects of H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act, as posted on the website of the House Committee on Rules on March 22, 2017, incorporating manager’s amendments 4, 5, 24, and 25. As a result of those amendments, this estimate shows smaller savings over the next 10 years than the estimate that CBO issued on March 13. The estimated effects on health insurance coverage and on premiums for health insurance are similar to those estimated for the committees’ recommendations.
