Private Health Insurance: Expiration of the Health Coverage Tax Credit Will Affect Participantsńˇ╗ Costs and Coverage Choices as Health Reform Provisions Are Implemented
John E. Dicken (au)
The Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) pays 72.5% of health plan premiums for certain workers who lost their jobs due to foreign import competition and for certain retirees whose pensions from their former employers were terminated and are now paid by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp. The HCTC program will expire at the end of 2013 when premium tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies become available to eligible individuals who purchase health plans through health insurance exchanges under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). PPACA also expands Medicaid eligibility to nonelderly individuals who meet specific income requirements to the extent that states choose to implement this provision. Therefore, the costs for health plans and coverage available to individuals potentially eligible for the HCTC will change when the HCTC expires. This report examines (1) how the HCTCńˇ╗s expiration and the implementation of the PPACA premium tax credit, cost-sharing subsidies, and Medicaid expansion will affect HCTC participants and nonparticipants; and (2) how the coverage that will be available through the PPACA exchanges compares to HCTC participantsńˇ╗ health plan coverage. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
