My question is that i thought obamacare was supposed to be cost friendly to those who couldn’t afford health care. How is it that if I’m making less than 1500 a month…. i gotta dish out between 350-400+ this health care… hows that work!!
Many states rejected expanding Medicaid. This means those with low incomes are priced out of Marketplace cost assistance, but make too much for Medicaid. You must make at least 100% of the Federal Poverty Level to qualify for cost assistance. For people who do qualify for cost assistance health insurance can't cost more than 2% - 9.5% of your household income per person.
To the above, if you are single then you actually do qualify for cost assistance (however if you file with a family you may be just under the 100% poverty level).
