CBO Scores Alexander Murray Legislation

On October 25 the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its score for the Alexander Murray bill.

The report concludes that draft legislation would decrease the federal deficit by $3.8 billion through 2027 and would result in no significant change in the number of people with health insurance coverage compared to the current CBO projection.  As expected, CBO also specified that bill’s provision specifically appropriating funds for CSR payments in 2018 and 2019 has no cost in terms of scoring because CBO already assumes that these payments will be made in its existing baseline.
