The Congressional Budget Office's review of the American Health Care Act will be released sometime in the week of May 22, almost two weeks after the bill passed the House of Representatives.

The office is planning to publish the information "early in the week of May 22," according to a release from Associate Director of Communications Deborah Kilroe.

Estimates of previous versions of the AHCA projected 24 million more uninsured by 2026 under the Republican plan as opposed to Obamacare, 52 million under 65 would be without coverage, and that average premiums would rise 15 to 20 percent in 2018-19.

The CBO also found, for the previous version of the bill, that "by 2026, average premiums for single policyholders in [that] market would be roughly 10 percent lower than under current law," and that it would reduce the federal deficit by $151 billion over 10 years.
