Implementing health reform: The premium tax credit final rule
The idea of using tax credits to purchase private health insurance for the uninsured is one of a number of the historically conservative policy positions adopted by the ACA. Both the Paul Ryan Roadmap and a recent proposal by James Capretta and Robert Moffit on How to Replace Obamacare also support premium tax credits to make health insurance accessible to Americans. To create tax credits that are sufficiently substantial to in fact make health insurance affordable to lower-income Americans, without creating a program so costly that it is unaffordable to the country, tax credits must be means-tested and must be structured so as not to crowd out employment-based insurance.
