Aiming to stabilize the individual market in the near term, the Senate would allocate funds for the cost sharing subsidies until 2019. Both chambers would have to agree on details for the bill to be sent to President Donald Trump. The uncertainty surrounding the payments is prompting some carriers to hike rates for 2018 or drop out of the exchanges. "They will have much higher deductibles than they are used to seeing".
The problem our country has is how to help people who are in the lowest economic straits, who have the most health challenges, get access to affordable coverage and, indeed, get well. Under Obamacare, these subsidies are tied to the mid-range "silver"-rated plans".
In 2017, the average deductible for a silver plan is just under $3,600, according to Health Pocket, an insurance shopping site.
