Obamacare, coming to a mall near you Politico
Too rich for Medicaid but too poor for a health care subsidy? Consumer Reports. What happens if you are in a non-Medicaid state, were in the ObamaCare bracket last year, but this year have fallen beneath it, such that your income is now under the Federal Poverty Limit, and so you are eligible neither for ObamaCare (with subsidy) or Medicaid?
One strategy, which seems to be perfectly legal, is to do nothing and just allow your current coverage to auto-renew, at the same subsidy level. That’s an option for anyone who received tax credits to buy Marketplace coverage in 2014.
“Seems” to be “perfectly” legal? Isn’t this the sort of critical, life-altering issue that Consumer Reports is supposed to provide authoritative advice on, as opposed to letting consumers, while purchasing an extremely expensive and opaque product, throw up their hands in despair and guess?
