How much of a subsidy will you get in Obamacare?
If you buy your own health insurance, you've no doubt heard that subsidies will be available next year to help pay the premiums. But will you get a subsidy and how much? Researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation have a report out Wednesday that provides some insight. Based on their analysis, about 48 percent of adults currently purchasing coverage for themselves will be eligible for subsidies next year – and those subsidies will average $5,548 per family. (KHN is an editorially independent program of the foundation.) Because that figure is an average, some families will get more and some will receive less when they enroll through new online marketplaces, which open Oct. 1.
