How can women and families afford the new health plans?
Already, the cost of health insurance has been lowered by the competition created in the new marketplaces. But the “sticker prices” of the new health plans still may be high for people on limited budgets. That’s why the Affordable Care Act provides two types of help for uninsured people looking to get covered through the new health insurance marketplaces:
• Low to moderate-income people can get financial aid to help with the cost of a private health plan. By shopping for health coverage through the new marketplaces, people will be able to apply for financial aid that can help reduce the cost of insurance premiums. Single people earning up to $44,000 a year will be eligible for this aid, as will a family of four with income up to $94,000 a year. The aid will be in the form of tax credits that you can apply immediately to the cost of your monthly premium. In some cases, you can also get help with the cost of co-pays and deductibles.
