Senate Health Bill: CBO score sure to add to McConnell's headaches

CBO Will Release Senate Healthcare Bill Score. The CBO announced Thursday it would release its analysis, commonly called a “score,” early this week and Axios and other news outlets reported Monday is expected to be the day.

CBO released a statement saying it was working to evaluate the bill with the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation to release an estimate. The analysis will be posted on the office’s website.

The CBO analysis of the House-passed American Health Care Act projected 23 million more people would be uninsured by 2026 than today and would cut the deficit by $119 billion over the same period.

The Senate bill is similar to the House bill but includes additional funding to stabilize the Obamacare health insurance exchanges and, so far, does not contain a provision that would penalize people for not having health care coverage.

The analysis of the bill might not end up being relevant to the final bill that passes the Senate.
