The CMS Office of the Chief Actuary estimates that 13 million Americans would lose insurance coverage by 2026 if the American Health Care Act becomes law, far lower than the 23 million projected by the Congressional Budget Office. The report predicts that under AHCA, the number of uninsured people would rise by 4 million next year, compared with the CBO's estimate of 14 million, and although premiums would fall, they would be 5% higher for those who receive tax credits, and cost sharing for prescription drugs and medical services would be 61% higher by 2026 than under the Affordable Care Act.
