The fate of health-insurance legislation in the Senate remains very much up in the air, but the Kaiser Family Foundation has updated its interactive, county-level map showing how the latest version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act would affect premiums for silver-level Obamacare plans, the type most commonly purchased with tax-credit subsidies.

The figures are the estimated premium in 2020 after tax credits. Pop-up tables for each county also show premiums for cheaper bronze-level plans, the amounts of tax credits (or savings from putting pre-tax income into health-savings accounts), and the change from current law.

Here’s a screenshot of the map for a 40-year-old Kentuckian with a yearly income of $40,000:

The map can be adjusted for age (27, 40 and 60) and income (mostly in in $10,000 increments). The version above is for 40-year-olds with income of $40,000 a year.

Here’s one for 60-year-olds making $60,000, showing that premiums for them would go up in every county:

To show how the individual county estimates are displayed, here’s a screenshot of estimates for a 40-year-old with $40,000 annual income in Grayson County (click on it for a larger version):
