On Sunday, President Trump signed a sweeping healthcare overhaul bill.
Here’s what you need to know.1.
Trump signed the healthcare overhaul on Friday, which includes several measures aimed at reducing health care costs, improving access to health care and lowering insurance premiums.
The bill also eliminates the individual mandate and other requirements.2.
The law is expected to save the government nearly $1 trillion over 10 years, according to estimates by the Kaiser Family Foundation.
That’s a far cry from the $6 trillion in projected savings estimated by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which also found that the law would cut federal deficits.3.
About 80 million Americans currently have private insurance, according the Kaiser Health Tracking Survey, a survey of more than 2,200 adults conducted every two years by the research firm Avalere Health.
About half of the people surveyed are in their 40s or older, with about one-quarter in their 50s or younger.4.
The majority of people in the survey say that they have had a regular doctor for more than a year, according a Kaiser poll released this month.
The survey found that nearly half of those surveyed say they have seen a regular physician for a minimum of a year.5.
About one in five Americans said that they had a physician visit within the past year, up from one in eight in 2012.
About 1 in 4 said they had had more than one doctor visit within a year last year.6.
More than a quarter of the American public now lives in a state with Medicaid coverage, up sharply from just 3 percent in 2012, according Kaiser.
That means that more than two-thirds of all Americans now have access to Medicaid.7.
About two-in-three adults with pre-existing conditions have private coverage, according Medicare.
In 2012, about 60 percent of Medicare beneficiaries had private insurance.8.
The number of people with pre to post-existing medical conditions has risen steadily in the past five years.
About 3.4 million Americans had health problems that were treated or prevented because of a preexisting condition in 2014, according data from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
About 7.2 million had health issues that were diagnosed but not treated, including 3.2 to 3.6 million with preterm births.9.
About 2.3 million people were admitted to emergency rooms due to chronic conditions in 2014.
Of those, 1.7 million were treated, according government data.10.
More people with disabilities and chronic conditions were admitted in 2014 than ever before.
About 6.5 million people had a chronic condition in 2012; 6.7 in 2013; and 7.1 in 2014 — about the same number of admissions as in 2013.
