Young Women Taking Advantage (Correctly)
It’s a nuance, perhaps an unintended consequence. Under the ACA, there is no such thing as a male premium or a female premium.
That means that women who are thinking about having a family get access to health insurance at the same premium as males. The ones that this favors the MOST? 26-40 year old females.
Mothers with children
Women planning on a family
The tax credit (APTC) heavily favors the 26-40 year olds, premiums can be $0/month, very likely to be < $100/month. Deadline is January 15th, insurance coverage would begin on February 1.
We thank the many young women that have already taken advantage of this, it is obvious to them, as it should be.
