A New England Journal of Medicine report states “the largest decreases [in death rates] were for deaths from ‘health care amenable’ conditions such as heart disease, infections and cancer, which are more plausibly affected by access to medical care.”

“Beginning with the Institute of Medicine’s 2002 report ‘Care Without Coverage,’ some analyses have suggested that lack of insurance causes tens of thousands of deaths each year in the United States,” the journal wrote in its report, “Health Insurance Coverage and Health—What the Recent Evidence Tells Us.”
Actuary tables tell us that ~1,300 Americans die prematurely each year for every 1 million Americans without healthcare. If we use the CBO figure of 22 million more uninsured Americans under the GOP 'healthcare' plans than under the current law (Obamacare), the math works out to ~28,600 additional American deaths per year.
