Changes in the affordability of Health plans
President Biden signed a document called the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA for short) that went into effect on March 11th and will allow consumers to receive additional help paying for their premiums. The act will also cap out the premium for health insurance plans to 8.5% of your modified adjusted gross household income. This is a very jargony way of saying that people that may not have initially qualified for tax credits could now qualify for substantial reductions in their premiums. There are some other pieces of the act, but these are the two big changes we have seen that are directly impacting our clients.
