Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) supporting legislation to provide $10.5 billion for high-risk pools to cover people with serious medical problems over a two year period, as well as legislation that would fund the Affordable Care Act's cost-sharing reduction subsidies for low-income people, could help mitigate the risks of repealing the individual mandate.

During previous ACA enrollment periods in the past two years, more than 7.2 million people had signed up for coverage when the period was nearly 75% complete, according to an analysis by consulting firm Avalere Health.

A spokesman for Health and Human Services says the cuts reflect a decline in participation.

"Those effects would occur mainly because healthier people would be less likely to obtain insurance and because, especially in the nongroup market, the resulting increases in premiums would cause more people to not purchase insurance", CBO said.

The enrollment deadline in MI is December 15.
