The table below is related to the blog post “Graham-Cassidy bill: even worse for California health coverage and state budget than previous ACA repeal bills.”
These estimates reflect complete loss of federal funding for the Medi-Cal expansion and subsidized insurance through Covered California in 2027 under the Graham-Cassidy bill. These estimates also include the projected coverage loss under one possible state response to the per capita cap provisions of Graham-Cassidy: eliminating Medi-Cal eligibility for children enrolled through the Healthy Families Program and capping enrollment for certain seniors and individuals with disabilities.
Notes: Estimates may not sum to totals due to rounding. Estimates are rounded to the nearest 100 individuals. In the smallest counties, estimates of no coverage loss in certain categories are reflective of rounding.
