These estimates alsoreflect the results of follow-up verification questions, which were askedof people who responded “no” to all questions about specific types ofhealth insurance coverage in order to verify whether they were actuallyuninsured. This change increased the number and percentage of peoplecovered by health insurance, bringing the CPS more in line with estimatesfrom other national surveys.Notes: Respondents were not asked detailed health insurance questionsbefore the 1988 CPS.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) forecastedexpenditures impacting healthcare as a huge and growing sectorof the U.S. economy. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO)forecasts the Federal deficit of the “ACA” will impact the insuranceprovision coverage costs over the next 11 years (2012 – 2022) toan increased gross Federal spending of $1.7 trillion.18The “CBO”further forecasts that although an increase in Medicaid spendingestimated to be $165 billion annually, Medicare savings will be$125 billion annually improving the U.S. deficit. The Departmentof Health and Human Services (HHS) voices concerns that the“CBO’s” estimates may not be accurate, predicting 2012 to 2019a $200 billion increase in National healthcare expenditures. Thefear is that $200 billion is an under estimated figure due to thepotential cuts in Medicare law, which may be unrealistic andunsustainable, forcing lawmakers to roll them back.
