Lower Health Subsidies Are Expected In 3 Arizona Counties

People living in Pima, Maricopa and Pinal counties are expected to get less in health insurance subsidies than most consumers in the 36 states that use the federal marketplace created under the nation's new health care law. An analysis by The Arizona Republic found that the calculations used to determine the subsidies are driven in Arizona by a single insurer that charges much less than other companies. The difference in the amount Arizonans will get compared with consumers in other states could be significant. According to the consumer-information website Value Penguin, a non-smoking 27 year old Tucson resident who earns $25,000 a year will not get any subsidy. But a person of the same age and income in Cheyenne, Wyoming qualifies for more than 21-hundred-dollars per year.
