It’s possible you may qualify for financial help to lower the cost of your plan. According to the GetCoveredNJ website
, there are three types of financial assistance: premium tax credits, cost-sharing reductions and NJ Health Plan Savings, a new state subsidy offered by the state of New Jersey. Premium tax credits and the state subsidy help lower your monthly premium payments. Cost-sharing reductions help lower your out-of-pocket costs like deductibles and co-pays for doctor visits.
In New Jersey, a family of four earning up to about $180,000 a year and an individual earning up to about $87,480 a year can qualify for financial assistance. Nine out of 10 enrollees are eligible for financial help to make insurance more affordable.
