Breaking down the CBO’s healthcare score

By Admin | June 12, 2017

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO), a nonpartisan scorekeeper, will evaluate the Republican healthcare proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.

The initial analysis by the CBO was considered less-than-favorable by Republicans. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said they only read part of the plan. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that the CBO was not a place to look for accuracy.

So what should you look for when the score is released?

  • The bill’s impact on the federal deficit
  • How many people would lose insurance coverage
  • Will premiums decrease over time?
  • Will there be Obamacare opt-outs?
  • What about people with pre-existing conditions?
