Under Trumpcare 37,900 Will Lose Healthcare in District 4

The Center for American Progress used CBO projections to calculate the number of individuals in every congressional district who will lose health insurance by 2026 under the devastating healthcare bill passed by the House. In our Indiana 4th District it is projected that a total of 37,900 nonelderly people will lose insurance coverage they have today. Medicaid losses including 6,200 children; 1,100 disabled; 1,300 elderly, and 8,000 covered in the ACA Medicaid expansion. 18,800 are expected lose their employer provided insurance, and 1,800 will lose coverage in the ACA exchanges and other coverage.
