Millions won't lose their insurance. They will freely choose for themselves whether they want to buy insurance or not. When the government stops FORCING them to buy insurance with the individual mandate, people will be able to choose not to buy insurance without worrying about the IRS coming after them.

"At the outset, it's because some consumers would choose not to buy insurance if they're not penalized for lacking it. "CBO and [the Joint Committee on Taxation] estimate that, in 2018, 14 million more people would be uninsured under the legislation than under current law. Most of that increase would stem from repealing the penalties associated with the individual mandate," the report reads. "Some of those people would choose not to have insurance because they chose to be covered by insurance under current law only to avoid paying the penalties, and some people would forgo insurance in response to higher premiums."
