The Affordability Puzzle
1) Premium Credits
2) Help with Health Care Costs

 Out-of-Pocket Caps
 Cost-Sharing Subsidies
Out-of-Pocket Caps: Key Points

have OOP caps beginning in 2014
 Caps apply only to covered services

1) Legally present people below 133%* of poverty
who are not Medicaid eligible

of income to participate in employer plan or
whose employer plan has less coverage than the
“bronze” exchange plan

bronze, silver, etc), but MUST select a silver
plan to get cost-sharing subsidy

What Happens When Estimated Income for the
Year is Different from Actual Income?
• Final amount of credit based on actual income
• At tax filing time, advance payments received
are reconciled with actual credit amount
– If income increases, may have to repay
– If income decreases, may get more credit at tax
time
• To avoid repayment, can reduce the amount of
advance payment received during the year

What if an Individual’s Tax Liability is Less than
the Credit Amount?
• Credit is refundable, so people with little or no
tax liability can still get the credit
John:
• Income of 22,980 (200% FPL)
• Eligible for credit of $3,552
• Tax liability of $1,500
Credit ($3,552) will offset tax liability
($1,500), and John will still get
remaining credit ($2,052)
