April 22, 2010

Revised April 30, 2010.

Compared with the version that CBO released on April 22, this revised document simply provides additional information about the total number of people who are expected to qualify for certain exemptions from the insurance mandate or its associated penalty. No changes have been made to the estimate that about 4 million people will pay a penalty because they will be uninsured in 2016 or to any of the other numbers reported in the text or the attached table.
