Don't pay more for insurance than you have to—you may qualify for a subsidy. Subsidies can lower monthly premiums and also provide discounts on health care. If your annual income is less than $54,360, you may qualify if you enroll through a marketplace plan. See the figures below to see if you may be eligible.
* The Inflation Reduction Act limits individuals/families from paying more than 8.5% of their household income toward the benchmark silver plan. Check with your health insurance broker or navigator to help clarify the specific subsidy amount you may qualify for.
Premium subsidies are also known as advanced premium tax credits (APTC). The amount you receive is based on your income and the size of your family. You can either use the subsidy to lower your monthly payment or you can claim the credit when you file your taxes.
