Enroll America Statement on Release of HHS Affordability Report

New report shows Ohioans average premium rate per month dropped after tax credits.

COLUMBUS, OH – Today, Enroll America State Director Trey Daly released the following statement in response to a new report released by Health and Human Services finding that Ohioans paid an average premium of $111 per month after tax credits for silver plans in the Marketplace in 2013-2014 and 52% of enrollees who selected Marketplace plans with tax credits had premiums of $100 a month or less.

“Today’s report shows that the Affordable Care Act is working to help Ohioans find quality, affordable health coverage. It’s great news that more than half of Ohioans who enrolled in coverage through the Marketplace found plans with premiums of $100 or less with financial assistance. We’ve known all along that affordability was motivating factor for consumers to enroll and that 84% of Ohioans who enrolled in coverage through the Marketplace received financial assistance. That’s why we will continue to educate and reach out to Ohioans about the availability of financial assistance to help them successfully enroll in a plan that fits their budget.”
