Report says Texans have more ACA choices, lower-than-projected costs

(Continued)

Premium and plan options are broken down by state where information is available. For example, the report shows that a 27-year-old living in Texas who makes $25,000 per year will pay $83 per month for the lowest-cost bronze plan and $145 per month for the second-lowest cost silver plan, taking into account tax credits. For a family of four in Texas with an income of $50,000 per year, the lowest bronze plan would cost $57 per month.

In Dallas-Fort Worth, a 27-year old who makes $25,000 per year will pay $74 per month for the lowest-cost bronze plan and $145 per month for the second-lowest cost silver plan, taking into account tax credits. For a family of four in Dallas-Fort Worth, with an income of $50,000 per year, the lowest bronze plan would cost $26 per month. Dallas-Fort Worth consumers will be able to choose from among 43 qualified health plans.

Consumers can get help finding Marketplace coverage through a number of different resources.  They can get more information through HealthCare.gov, or cuidadodesalud.gov. They can participate in an online web chat, or call 1-800-318-2596 toll free (TTY: 1-855-889-4325) to speak with a trained customer service representative with translation services available in 150 languages.

There will also be people in local communities who can provide in-person help with coverage choices. Those will include navigators and other assisters, community health centers across the country, local libraries and hundreds of Champions for Coverage who have signed up to help consumers learn about their options.
