President Donald Trump’s new healthcare bill has a $1 trillion price tag and a number of provisions that will not come to pass under a new budget process.
But the president has not yet released a score.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said the House bill does not have a “score,” which is required by law.
The CBO said it would only release a score after the legislation is passed into law.
Trump’s latest plan would roll back federal funding for Medicaid, which covers the poor and disabled.
It would cut the number of people covered by the program by a third, leaving 21 million fewer people covered than under current law.
Many of the same provisions have already been stripped from the Senate version.
The White House said in a statement that the bill does “not contain any essential health benefits.”
The House bill would also reduce the number who get subsidies to purchase health insurance.
Many people who earn up to 400% of the federal poverty level (FPL) would lose their subsidies under the bill.
The Trump administration has previously said that people earning up to 500% of that level would not be impacted.
The bill would reduce Medicaid spending by $880 billion, or 5%.
The House would also eliminate the requirement that states expand Medicaid to all people making up to 133% of FPL.
States would still be allowed to decide whether to continue to cover Medicaid recipients who earn between 100% and 400% FPL, but states would have to decide by January 20 if they would be able to do so.
The new CBO score, released on Monday, found that the Congressional Budget Board would not provide a “clear picture” of the impact of the legislation.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget office said it does not currently have “a score” on the legislation because the bill would have “an uneven impact on the poor, young, and low-income Americans.”
The CBO also said that there would be “limited flexibility” to the states and federal government over how they would implement the law.
“The budget office does not expect that the budget process will provide a meaningful picture of the overall impact of this bill,” the agency said.
The GOP plan has been widely condemned by conservatives.
Republican Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, the lead author of the Senate bill, said the bill is a “massive giveaway to the insurance industry” that will “make the insurance market less stable, more expensive, and more unstable.”
He said that the legislation “would allow insurance companies to gouge people out of their health insurance.”
“We need to end the massive giveaways to the health insurance industry,” Alexander said.
In addition, he said that “the bill does nothing to address the underlying cause of the cost of care, which is that premiums are too high.”
Alexander said that Republicans are “going to spend a lot of time and energy” debating the issue, but added, “I think we will find a way.”
The White Houses statement also noted that CBO has been unable to accurately predict the cost and scope of the Medicaid cuts.
“As a result, CBO cannot assess the extent to which the Senate’s proposal will have a substantial impact on coverage, affordability, or the quality of care,” the statement read.
The Senate’s bill includes funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which provides health insurance for children.
The Republican plan would cut $2 billion from the program.
House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have said that their bill would create a “block grant” for the program, which would allow states to raise the cost cap on Medicaid enrollment and block grant Medicaid spending.
The Medicaid expansion has long been controversial, with Republicans citing studies that showed states that expanded Medicaid would have lower overall spending and fewer enrollees than states that did not.
The House passed its version of the bill on Saturday, and the Senate is expected to take a final vote on Monday.
The legislation would also phase out Medicaid funding for pregnant women and would cut federal funding to Planned Parenthood by $1.5 billion over 10 years.
It also would increase the federal standard for coverage for mental health services and end the federal requirement that employers provide insurance coverage for maternity leave.
Trump has said he would be willing to sign a bill repealing the ACA if Republicans could come up with a CBO score that would allow for a “fair” rate of coverage.
“I’ll sign it if they do a score and they can come up and show me the numbers,” Trump said at a press conference on Saturday.
The measure is expected later on Monday afternoon.
