It’s not just the poor who stand to lose coverage under the Republicans’ new health care plan. Millions of higher-income Americans who get insurance through their employers would also join the ranks of the uninsured.
On Monday, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released a scorching analysis suggesting that under the GOP plan — dubbed the American Health Care Act — 24 million people would become uninsured over the next decade.
Deep cuts to Medicaid account for the bulk of the newly uninsured. Beyond that, reduced government subsidies and lower penalties for forgoing insurance also play a role, the CBO said.
But what about workers who already have coverage?
