The Kaiser Family Foundation created this tool which illustrates premiums and government assistance under the health reform law signed by the President. Beginning in 2014, tax credits will be available for people under age 65 who purchase coverage on their own in a health insurance Exchange and are not covered through their employer, Medicare or Medicaid.
Note: Subsidies are only available for people purchasing coverage on their own in the Exchange (not through an employer). All individuals and families with incomes at or below 133% of the federal poverty level will be eligible for Medicaid. Others with higher incomes may also be eligible, depending on rules that vary by state.
Subsidies will help individuals and families whose income are less than or up to 400% of the FPL. CLICK HERE to see what your insurance premiums could be on the private exchanges and if or how much subsidy you will receive.
