9 out of 10 people qualify for financial assistance¹
There are two types of federal financial assistance are available when buying one of our plans.
Premium Tax Credits
This is a tax credit you can take in advance of your monthly health insurance payment (or “premium”) based on your expected income. If you qualify for a premium tax credit, you can use some or all of it to reduce your monthly premium payment when you enroll in a Qualified Health Plan (QHP).²
If you have a Silver Plan, these can lower the amount you pay out of pocket. The size of your household and income determine how much. These reductions can be combined with a Premium Tax Credit.
²Federal financial assistance can only be applied to the purchase of a Qualified Health Plan (QHP), which is an insurance plan that’s certified by the Health Insurance Marketplace®, provides essential health benefits, follows established limits on cost-sharing (like deductibles, copayments, and out-of-pocket maximum amounts), and meets other requirements under the Affordable Care Act.
