Why Are Deductibles So High?

One of the ways that premiums can be affordable, and plans can be comprehensive, is by having rather high deductibles. The PPACA limits all deductibles

Are there Subsidies for Deductibles?

Only those with Silver marketplace plans, who make less than 250% FPL, can get cost assistance to lower deductibles. $6,600 for an individual $13,200 for a family.

How Do Deductibles Work With ObamaCare?

Deductibles are lowered by Cost Sharing Reduction subsidies, on Silver plans only. You’ll pay out of pocket for all care not subject to a copay before you meet your deductible.
