Do you qualify for an ACA subsidy for 2019 health insurance?

Probably. Thanks to the ACA, commonly known as Obamacare, everyone is now eligible for health insurance, including Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, and Tennessee residents. This means your monthly premiums can be dramatically reduced. For example, if your household income was if your household income was $20,780 to $83,120 for a family of three in 2018, you will likely receive a premium tax credit to lower your insurance costs.

Our subsidized plans will be available here after Nov. 1 and directly on Healthcare.gov  or Connect for Health Colorado .


Individual & Family health insurance market.

In the individual & Family health insurance marketplace, or exchange, the federal government provides these subsidies to keep your costs affordable from year to year. As market costs adjust annually, so do the savings opportunities. That means when premiums go up, so does the available assistance to help cover them. You can think of it as a built-in safety net that flexes to keep your healthcare costs budget-friendly.

Depending on your household income level, you may be eligible for health insurance subsidies based on:

  • Size of your household
  • Household’s estimated income

Federal subsidies are Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTC) and are not available to people eligible for Medicaid or Medicare or who have affordable coverage through an employer. Arizona, Alabama and Tennessee use the federally-facilitated marketplace (FFM) to pass along savings while Colorado uses its state exchange, called Connect for Health Colorado. This is where Bright Health is sold with federal subsidies that reduce your monthly health insurance premiums. If you have more questions, don't worry - we can help you determine whether you qualify. Call us at 833-356-1182.

Health Insurance Subsidies 101

The “Affordable Care Act” refers to the law that provides numerous rights and protections that make health coverage more fair and easy to understand, along with subsidies, making it more affordable. It’s sometimes known as “PPACA,” “ACA,” or “Obamacare.” The law also established exchanges or marketplaces where you can see if you qualify to receive tax credits and cost sharing, shop for plans, and get help.

When the ACA was signed into federal law in 2010, it established a federal marketplace for all states, or it allowed for each state to create its own state marketplace. Subsidized Bright Health plans are available here or directly via Healthcare.gov  or in Colorado on the Connect for Health Colorado website .

If you meet income-level qualifications, you may be eligible for cost-sharing reductions (CSR) on Silver-level plans only (The ACA marketplace uses metal tiers to describe plans, such as Gold, Silver, and Bronze.). With CSR plans, the government will help you out as your medical expenses grow. Specifically, the government subsidizes reductions of the maximum out-of-pocket limit as well as possible reductions in deductibles, coinsurance, or copayments. 

Qualified Health Plans (QHP) are major medical plans that meet the requirement outlined in the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare. These are the only plans that subsidies can be used with. QHPs are insurance plans that are certified by the government and provide essential health benefits (EHBs).

These are the 10 Essential Health Benefits categories :

  1. Ambulatory patient services.
  2. Emergency services.
  3. Hospitalization.
  4. Maternity and newborn care.
  5. Mental health and substance use disorder services, including behavioral health treatment.
  6. Prescription drugs.
  7. Rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices.
  8. Laboratory services.
  9. Preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management.
  10. Pediatric services, including oral and vision care.

Bright Health works with our Care Partner networks to offer more than the required benefits. And we do it while saving you money.
