On September 9, 2020, the House Committee on Energy and Commerce ordered 25 bills related to federal health care programs and services to be reported; some of those bills have since been passed by the House of Representatives. This single, comprehensive document provides estimates for each piece of legislation.
Pay-as-you-go procedures would apply to six bills that would affect direct spending or revenues, and thus the deficit. Nineteen would increase spending (outlays), subject to appropriation. Two contain private-sector mandates. None of the bills would increase on-budget deficits in any of the four consecutive 10-year periods beginning in 2031. Detailed estimates are shown on the following pages.
