Healthcare Subsidies

"People who are not in a government health insurance program, such as Medicaid or Medicare, and do not have access to an affordable plan at work may be eligible for help paying their premiums. The assistance is available to those with incomes of up to four times the federal poverty level — this year, that’s $45,960 for an individual or $94,200 for a family of four — and will be scaled to ensure that folks don’t pay more than a designated percentage (the exact target varies by income level) of their earnings toward the premium. The subsidy will be paid directly to the insurance company.”


Help get the word out.  Next year (2014) people can buy a plan on their state healthcare exchange and get some help paying for their health insurance.
