Marketplace Subsidies Overview
Financial assistance under the ACA for those seeking coverage through the Marketplaces comes in two forms: the premium tax credit and the cost-sharing reduction (CSR).
Premium Tax Credit
Cost Sharing Reduction (CSR)
The ACA’s financial assistance programs aim to make healthcare more accessible and affordable for individuals with lower or moderate incomes. The premium tax credit reduces monthly premiums for various metal-level plans, while cost-sharing reductions lower out-of-pocket costs, particularly for silver-level plans. By understanding these subsidies and meeting the eligibility criteria, individuals can make informed decisions when purchasing coverage through the Marketplace, ultimately easing the financial burden associated with health insurance.
