Warning to governors: Big coverage losses under GOP health plan

Hundreds of thousands of people in a typical state would lose coverage under a standard Republican Obamacare repeal and replacement plan, and the state would lose anywhere between 65 and 80 percent of its federal health care funding, according to a presentation governors were given at a meeting in Washington Saturday.

Governors from both parties were presented with the findings during a National Governors Association closed-door health care meeting. The analyses, obtained by Axios, were presented by Avalere Health and McKinsey & Co. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price also spoke to the group.

The impact would vary by state, but in a sample state that expanded Medicaid, it’s estimated that:

The state would lose $635 million in federal funding, a 65 percent decrease.

110,000 current enrollees would no longer be able to afford a plan.
