Yes this is possible, but I don't know how these rules vary from state to state.
I visited my State's exchange website at https://www.coveredca.com/ . In a few minutes I was able to find an individual plan for someone my age, at a hypothetical $60,000 per year, with no dependents, for $260 a month. A plan for a single person with one child is $129 more.
The plan is called "Basic EPO for HSA" and is offered through Blue Shield. Here is the cost break down:
- Adult #1 (age 40):$260You pay:$260
I tried again and I said that I have one child, I get the following cost breakdown:
Adult #1 (age 40):
Dependent #1 (age 0-18):
Total dependent (age 0-18) cost:
In a basic sense you are paying for the other guy gal. Its unfortunately not fair but true.
No one said healthcare would be free. Just enabling it to be more affordable for someone like me. 27, single, making under 25,000 a year. Instead of paying 300 or more a month I am only paying 100. Something I can budget in. I am sorry those privileged enough to make more than ends meet to live is upset you aren't seeing how this helps us that scrape by, sorry someone pissed in your cereal of fox news crunchy bull poop, but go jump off a bridge.
People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:
- Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
- Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
- Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
- Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
- Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
