Nearly all Pennsylvanians would be affected if the Affordable Care Act is repealed, according to a new report released today by the Pennsylvania Health Funders Collaborative (PHFC), a non-partisan network of 40 health foundations throughout the state.
The findings include:
- One million adults and children would lose health insurance;
- Seniors on Medicare would lose protection from large prescription drug costs;
- Nearly 10 million people covered by private insurance would lose valuable protections;
- The state’s hospitals collectively would lose billions of dollars in revenue;
- 137,000 residents would likely lose their jobs.
The report includes consumer data for each of the state's 18 congressional districts and for Philadelphia, Allegheny, Montgomery and Delaware counties. It also presents data on how individual hospitals in each of the state's 67 counties would be affected.
