Federal Medicaid spending under the Better Care Reconciliation Act would be 35% lower in 2036, according to a new analysis released late this afternoon by the Congressional Budget Office. CBO, the non-partisan federal agency that produces independent analyses of budgetary and economic issues to support the congressional budget process, earlier this week said federal Medicaid spending under the BCRA would be 26% lower in 2026. In addition, CBO said the legislation would result in 22 million more people uninsured in 2026 and cut $772 billion in federal spending from the Medicaid program from 2017-2026.
