I went to "the official cost calculator" of the governments healthcare.gov website and entered some information. Since the young and healthy are a major revenue generator (vs loss), I entered the following information:<quoted text>
The premium is NOT $100...stop lying.
The taxpayers are paying the real premium.
Annual income: 24,000
Number of people in family: 1
Here are the results
Household income in 2014: 209% of poverty level
Unsubsidized annual health insurance premium in 2014:$3,163
Maximum % of income you have to pay for the non-tobacco premium, if eligible for a subsidy: 6.61%
Amount you pay for the premium:$1,587 per year which equals 6.61% of your household income and covers 50% of the overall premium)
You could receive a government tax credit subsidy of up to:$1,576
(which covers 50% of the overall premium)
Also, Your out-of-pocket maximum for a Silver plan (not including the premium) can be no more than $5,200 (There's your deductible...$5200)
