Am I eligible for financial help to lower the cost of health insurance?

Individuals who apply for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace may be eligible for financial help to lower the cost of the health plan they select. Examples of financial help programs include: Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program), Premium Tax Credits, and Cost-Sharing Reductions. In order to be eligible for financial help to lower the cost of health insurance, individuals must:

(1) Be eligible to purchase insurance through the Marketplace.
(2) Meet the income requirements based on their household size (Check the Do I Qualify Tool).

Whether or not you are eligible for and/or enrolled in other coverage may also affect your eligibility for financial help. You can determine what financial help programs you and your family are eligible for by completing an application.
