National Report on Health Care Marketplace



LINCOLN -- A new national report estimates 122,000 people in Nebraska are eligible for tax credits to help cover the cost of health insurance in new online marketplaces.  The nonpartisan group, Kaiser Family Foundation, estimates 239,000 people in Nebraska are potential customers on the health care marketplaces, including those who don't qualify for Medicaid or for an employer-based health care plan.  To get subsidies, people must have incomes between 100 and 400% of the federal poverty level - between just over $23,000 and $94,000  a year for a family of 4.  Nebraska is one of 36 states where the federal government is running the online health care exchange.
