Mental illness is one of the most overlooked health problems in America. And one of the most common mental health issues is depression, which an estimated 15 million Americans have. That’s almost 7% of the 18-and-older population. If you’re among that crowd, the American Health Care Act wouldn’t be kind to your insurance bills. An estimated surcharge of 208%, or almost $8,500, is what the Center for American Progress analysis predicts.
