CBO: Disability insurance program proposal would save $59 billion over 10 years

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that a legislative proposal for a disability insurance program would save $59 billion between 2010 and 2019. Also, if implemented, this program would lead to savings of $2.5 billion for the Medicaid program over that period, the public analysis agency said late last week.
