Cost-Sharing Reductions

How much are the cost-sharing subsidies?

That depends on your income and where you live. To give a general idea, a typical Silver plan might have an annual deductible of $4,500, for example, and an annual out of pocket limit on all cost sharing of $8,550. But if your income is between 100% and 150% of the federal poverty level, the cost-sharing reductions will modify a Silver plan so that the annual deductible might be closer to $250 and the annual out-of-pocket limit on all cost sharing would be no more than $2,850.

If your income is between 150% and 200% of the federal poverty level, the cost-sharing reductions will modify the Silver plan so that the annual deductible might be around $800 and the annual out-of-pocket limit would be no more than $2,850.

If your income is between 200% and 250% of the federal poverty level, the cost-sharing reductions will be more modest. At this income level, your annual out-of-pocket limit will be reduced to no more than $6,800.
