I recently applied for coverage for a friend of mine who is unemployed, and is on food stamps for help with food. He doesn’t qualify for Medicaid or Medicare. So we went through our local market place for the health insurance. This is where I was appalled at what I have seen. The lowest choice for him was 215 dollars a month with a 6,000 dollar deductible. I will not even go into the highest amount. but seriously that is ridiculous. Now with this law, you tell me how it is fair to expect someone who has no income to come up with that money for insurance. He has no income at all.
If you have no income then getting covered is free in all states that expanded Medicaid. In state's that didn't you could be in "the Medicaid Gap". You have to make at least $11,670 to qualify for ObamaCare's Marketplace subsidies. You can however apply for an exemption for being rejected for Medicaid, and use that to get a "catastrophic" plan. The plan you are looking at is an unsubsidized plan.
NOTE: The specific thresholds for assistance change each year and are based on the Federal Poverty level. For 2019 coverage it is $12,140 and for 2020 coverage it is $12,490 for example. You can always contact HealthCare.Gov and/or your state Medicaid department for the current healthcare assistance thresholds.
