Those newfangled Obamacare plans can be pretty cheap—especially if the government is helping you pay for them.
In fact, 69 percent of enrollees who bought HealthCare.gov-sold insurance plans with government subsides ended up paying $100 or less per month in premiums, officials revealed.
And 46 percent of those subsidy-eligible enrollees in the health-care exchange paid $50 or less per month in premiums, said federal officials.
Those averages are significant because the overwhelming majority—87 percent—of the 5.4 million people who bought health insurance through HealthCare.gov by mid-April did so using subsidies. Those tax credits are available to individuals who earn between about $11,490 to $46,000 per year.
