Health Insurance

The Affordable Care Act health insurance

On March 23, of 2010 President Obama signed the​ the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare. The law has been through many changes over the last few years and now allows over 35 million people the chance the have “affordable” health insurance coverage, either though Marketplace plans or Medicare expansion.

ACA explained

New changes for 2023.

In 2023, a job-based health plan is considered “affordable” if your share of the monthly premium in the lowest-cost plan offered by the employer is less than 9.12% of your household income.

  • The lowest-cost plan must also meet the minimum value standard.
  • If you’re the employee, affordability is based on only the premium you’d pay for self-only (individual) coverage.
  • For coverage starting January 1, 2023, if you’re offered job-based coverage through a household member’s job, affordability is based on the premium amount to cover everyone in the household.
  • Total household income includes incomes from everybody in the household who’s required to file a tax return.

If the premiums aren’t considered affordable for the employee and the household, they may qualify for savings in a Marketplace plan. But, if the premium is considered affordable for the employee, but not for other members of the household, then only the other household members may qualify for savings.


  • Household’s monthly income = $4,083 (about $49,000 per year).
  • 9.12% of the household’s monthly household income = $372

For the employee:

  • Monthly premium the employee would have to pay for the lowest-priced plan that covers just the employee = $300
  • Is the plan affordable for the employee? YES. The premium the employee would have to pay to cover just themselves ($300) is less than 9.12% of the household’s income ($372). Because the job-based coverage is affordable for the employee, the employee won’t qualify for savings in the Marketplace.

For other household members:

  • Monthly premium the employee would have to pay for the lowest-priced plan that covers other members of their household = $450
  • Is the plan affordable for other household members? NO. The premium the employee would have to pay to cover others in the household ($450) is more than 9.12% of the household’s income ($372). Because the job-based coverage isn’t affordable for the employee’s household members, the employee’s household members may qualify for savings in the Marketplace. ​

Employer Coverage Tool

Use this worksheet to help you gather information about employers that offer traditional health coverage to anyone on your Marketplace application. Complete one form for each employer that offers coverage. You’ll need this information to complete the application, even if no one enrolls in coverage through their job (or the job of another person, like a spouse or parent). Don’t use this form if someone works for a business that offers help paying for a health plan or health care expenses through a Health Reimbursement Arrangement (HRA).

Short Term Medical

An affordable option?

If you missed the annual enrollment period on the Marketplace for your health insurance, or you just don’t want to pay the high prices for the ACA, short term medical plans can be an option for you. Keep in mind they do not cover pre-existing health conditions and have none or limited prescription coverage.
