NPR calculator: 'How Much Will Obamacare Cost Me?'
Transforming Health | 09.30.13
Open enrollment begins tomorrow in Pennsylvania’s new federally-facilitated health insurance marketplace for the uninsured and privately insured. Nearly all Americans will be required to have health insurance starting Jan. 1, 2014, or else they'll be liable for a tax penalty.
Even now, there is quite a bit of confusion about the law and how it will work. If you count yourself among those wondering how much coverage will cost, this calculator can help you find an answer. Produced by the Kaiser Family Foundation in collaboration with NPR, it allows shoppers to find out if they qualify for subsidized insurance coverage or Medicaid.
Enter your ZIP code, income, age, family size and a few other factors into the calculator to get subsidy estimates and insurance premiums available for coverage sold on the marketplaces, or exchanges, once enrollment begins.
