2 Overview 2 The Affrdable Care Act (ACA) ushers in sme new changes t the way emplyees can access subsidized health insurance at Marketplaces (like the Massachusetts Health Cnnectr) The law tries t leverage private ffers f emplyerbased cverage when cverage meets a minimum value and a federally defined affrdability standard Fr thse emplyees withut such cverage and wh meet incme criteria, subsidies will be available at the Massachusetts Health Cnnectr

3 3 Where We ve Been: Affrdability Prir t the ACA Under Massachusetts health refrm (Chapter 58), lw and middle-incme emplyees were blcked frm Cmmnwealth Care if they were ffered emplyer-spnsred health insurance where the emplyer ffered t cntribute at least 33% twards cverage This standard did nt lk t whether r nt the emplyee s share f the premium was affrdable

4 The ACA s Apprach t Affrdability 4 The ACA prvides subsidies in the frm f tax credits t individuals and families that earn up t 400 percent f the federal pverty level (FPL) (See next slide) Fr an individual t access these tax credits at the Marketplace (e.g., the Health Cnnectr), they need t either: nt have access t emplyer-spnsred health insurance Have access t health insurance thrugh their emplyer, but that cverage desn t meet a minimum value standard and/r the cst required f the emplyee fr self-nly cverage wuld exceed 9.5 percent f the emplyee s husehld incme

6 Ging Deeper Int Eligibility 6 What is Minimum Value? The Minimum Value standard (als referred t as MV ) requires that a plan ffered by an emplyer cvers at least 60 percent f allwed csts under that plan Whether a plan meets MV can be fund n the Summary f Benefits and Cverage (SBC) fr a health plan In Massachusetts, it wuld be very uncmmn fr an emplyer t ffer cverage that des nt meet this MV standard

7 Ging Deeper Int Eligibility (Cnt d) 7 What is affrdable? The ACA defines affrdable cverage, fr the purpses f determining eligibility fr tax credits at Marketplaces like the Health Cnnectr, as cverage that requires less than 9.5 percent f an individual s husehld incme fr self-nly cverage Husehld incme is based n MAGI calculatins
