Affordable Care Act
Are you getting government subsidies to help cover health insurance costs? If you receive subsidies to help cover health care costs, you could be saving a significant amount of money.
But what does health insurance cost without a subsidy? Unfortunately, not everyone qualifies for subsidies, so it’s important to see what health insurance costs without them.
The following data reflects health insurance costs and shopping trends from the 2018 Open Enrollment Period, which ran from November 1 to December 15, 2017.
The figures above are from eHealth’s Health Insurance Price Index Report for 2018, based solely on eHealth shoppers who selected individual or family health insurance plans during the 2018 open enrollment period (between November 1 and December 15, 2017) and who did not recieve government subsidies.
eHealth is one of the few organizations with national source health insurance data that broadly reflects consumer buying patterns and purchase prices in the self-purchased individual and family health insurance market. eHealth’s report provides insights into the large segment of the individual and family health insurance market which may not qualify for or elect to use government subsidies, and which may shop for coverage through sources other than government exchanges.
