Note: These data were updated on March 21, 2017 based on a methodology correction.
The Center for American Progress (CAP) estimated the number of people who would be uninsured by 2026 in each US congressional district under the Trump administration’s American Health Care Act (AHCA). In most cases, CAP used the Congressional Budget Office’s national estimate and allocated it proportionally among districts.
Coverage losses projected in California across various coverage types:
Total coverage loss (nonelderly): 2,603,800
Medi-Cal (nonelderly adults): 230,600
Medi-Cal (children): 455,900
Medi-Cal (nonelderly disabled): 91,700
Medi-Cal (elderly): 159,700
Employer-sponsored insurance: 805,700
