The American Health Care Act, which narrowly passed the House last week, would cause millions of people to lose their health insurance if it passes the Senate in its current form. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that a previous version of the bill, which did not pass, would increase the uninsured count by 24 million people. At the time of the House vote, the CBO had not yet estimated the impact of the revised legislation but it certainly won’t reduce the uninsured rate. And that’s especially bad news for 1.4 million transgender Americans who are not only more likely to be uninsured than the general population, but who frequently face denials of coverage even when they do have health insurance.
