Subsidy (Individual Health Coverage)

A support provided by the government that helps people and families with low to middle income pay for their health coverage when they purchase it through Healthcare.gov. This support means that individuals and families may qualify to get health plans with lower premiums and other expenses.

Families with income at or below 250% of FPG, $31,900 for an individual ($65,500 for a family of four), may also get qualify to get health coverage with lower expenses, such as reduced copayments, coinsurance, or deductibles, as long as they choose to get a silver plan.
