Here are the 17 cities that have the most to lose under 'Trumpcare'


The American Health Care Act, the GOP bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, is expected to be voted on by the full House of Representatives later this week.

Health policy experts have been digesting what the law could change for average Americans, including the AHCA's impact on the cost of health insurance.

As part of the AHCA, Americans who do not get coverage through their employer or a government program like Medicaid or Medicare will receive a tax credit to go out and buy insurance through the individual insurance market.

The AHCA does not adjust subsidies based on income or cost of living, unlike the Affordable Care Act, instead giving a flat total to people based on their age.

WalletHub looked at the ACA and AHCA tax credit structures and determined the metro areas where the average tax credit for insurance would fall the most.

The cities are clustered in a few states. For instance, of the 17 metro areas that would see the average credit decline by $3,500 or more, 7 of them are in North Carolina — the most of any state.

Only two of the top 17 cities are in states that voted for Hillary Clinton, with the other 15 cities in states that went for Trump in November.
