Full ACA repeal could cost $350B: 4 things to know

Repealing the ACA could cost an estimated $350 billion through 2027 when using conventional scoring, a Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget report found.

Here are four things to know:

1. Report authors estimated if legislators got rid of the ACA's coverage provisions, they would save the healthcare system $1.55 trillion.

2. Repealing the health law's coverage and revenue provisions would reap $750 billion in savings.

3. If lawmakers fully repeal the health law, there would be 23 million uninsured Americans.

4. The report notes an ACA replacement plan will be costly, which is why legislators will likely keep most of the ACA's offsets.
