did you know?

If you enroll in an ACA plan, you are likely eligible for financial assistance. Nearly 9 million people who have health insurance through the Affordable Care Act exchange, or 87 percent, receive subsidies that help pay for the cost of their premium. As of 2019, the average subsidy was $514 per month.

For young adults under 30, the Affordable Care Act marketplace offers catastrophic plans, which are less expensive but only cover emergencies and some preventative care. This can provide an accessible option for younger people after they leave their parents’ insurance plan.
