Kaiser updates subsidy calculator, HHS releases exchange premium averages
Today the Department of Health and Human Services released a report, showing the average premium prices for insurance plans bought through the health insurance marketplaces that will open Oct. 1.
Read more on that here.
Also today, the Kaiser Family Foundation updated its subsidy calculator. Kaiser had posted that calculator tool a while back, to let people get an idea of whether they’re eligible for federal tax subsidies to help pay for insurance through the marketplace.
The update lets people put in their zip code for a more accurate calculation of their potential premiums and subsidies.
You can check out the calculator here.
