Access to Marketplace Plans with Low Premiums: Current Enrollees and the American Rescue Plan

04/13/2021

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) enhances and expands Marketplace premium tax credits under the Affordable Care Act. Among the nearly 8 million current HealthCare.gov enrollees, we estimate 79 percent could find a zero premium health plan and 87 percent could find a low premium health plan under the ARP. We estimate availability of zero-premium and low-premium health plans in the silver metal tier among current HealthCare.gov enrollees increased 41 percentage points and 25 percentage points, respectively, under the ARP. This Issue Brief is the third in a series that examines the availability of zero- and low-premium health plans in HealthCare.gov states.
