A surprisingly large number of people qualify for financial help when buying health insurance.
For example, someone who earns up to $45,900 a year, or a family of four earning up to $94,200 a year, qualifies for reduced monthly premiums or a tax credit at the end of the year.
By using one of several good calculators that are available, you can estimate how much assistance you may obtain—before you even visit the Marketplace site (www.HealthCare.gov). However, the Marketplace will let you know the exact assistance you can expect.
