Who can qualify for help paying for health insurance?

National health reform raises income limits for people who can qualify for help paying for health insurance. Individuals and families earning up to 400% of the federal poverty level (FPL) who do not otherwise have access to affordable health insurance from an employer or other program may qualify for a tax credit to lower their monthly premium. Here are some examples of the types of household and income levels that are within 400% of the FPL:

  • Individuals earning up to about $46,680 a year
  • A family of two earning up to about $62,920 a year
  • A family of three earning up to about $79,160 a year
  • A family of four earning up to about $95,400 a year
