What is the government subsidy on health insurance, and who qualifies?

Some individuals and/or families meeting certain income criteria may qualify for a federal government subsidy or tax credit on health insurance purchased through the health insurance exchanges, also called the marketplace.

To see if you are eligible for a subsidy, contact the My NASW Health Choices Program at 866-206-8509. You will be asked to provide income information during the enrollment process, and a licensed health benefits counselor will help determine whether you are eligible, and if so, your subsidy or tax credit amount.

Learn more about health insurance subsidies, and calculate your eligibility, at the Henry Kaiser Family Foundation website at http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/.
