Over Two Million People With Serious Mental Illnesses Would Become Uninsured if the Supreme Court Kills Health Insurance Subsidies

Prepared by Joel E. Miller, James K. Finley, Rebecca Gibson and Whitney Meyerhoeffer 

 A new study shows that over 2.5 million Americans who have a serious mental health condition in 34 states will become uninsured in 2016, if the Supreme Court rolls back tax credit subsidies that currently make it affordable for those individuals to purchase coverage on federally-run health insurance marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). 

The report highlights that, overall 3.2 million citizens with serious mental health conditions in 34 states that have federally-run exchanges are currently receiving subsidies that help offset the cost of monthly health insurance premiums. Only about a third would be able to keep some form of private health insurance.
