H.R. 3922 would extend funding for Community Health Centers and several other public health programs for two years, through 2019. It also would shorten the grace period during which premiums can be paid and reduce funding available for the Prevention and Public Health Fund. On net, CBO estimates that implementing the legislation would reduce the deficit by $1.4 billion over the 2018-2027 period.
Enacting H.R. 3922 would affect direct spending and revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply.
CBO estimates that enacting H.R. 3922 would not increase net direct spending or on-budget deficits in one or more of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2028.
H.R. 3922 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act.
