Analysis of Proposed Health Bill Shows Dozens of States Would Lose Money

Analysis of Proposed Health Bill Shows Dozens of States Would Lose Money

September 26, 2017 12:00 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) - A new analysis finds that 34 states and Washington, D.C., would lose money under the newest version of the Republican health care bill.
    
This is despite last-minute changes to the legislation.
    
Overall, states would get $205 billion less in federal health care money from 2020-2026, according to the analysis from consulting firm Avalere Health, which was released Tuesday.
    
States that expanded Medicaid to cover low-income adults, as well as those where lots of residents have signed up for subsidized private health insurance, were more likely to be losers under the Graham-Cassidy bill.
    
The latest changes soften the magnitude of the funding shifts, but the end result remains similar.
    
Half the 30 states President Donald Trump won last year would lose money.
    
Losses would grow over time. Sixteen states would gain money.
