Baker has argued that the Senate GOP health care bill could have a cumulative negative impact of more than $8.2 billion on MA by 2025 and kick 264,000 state residents off their health coverage.

Moderate senators anxious that millions of people would lose their insurance.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released its estimate Monday that the healthcare plan would leave 22 million more Americans uninsured in 2026 than Obamacare. If more than two GOP senators defect, the bill will fail.
