A new issue brief released by the Kaiser Family Foundation looks at the effect that ACA replacement legislation may have on the premium tax credits that are currently available. The brief entitled “How Affordable Care Act Repeal and Replace Plans Might Shift Health Insurance Tax Credits” examines the current structure of the premium tax credits and compares that with various proposals being offered in Congress. The brief explains how the current ACA premium tax credits work and includes a chart which breaks down what tax credits would be available under the ACA and two of the Congressional replacement plans, breaking down what would be available for individuals of different ages and income levels. It also shows what tax credit would be for the US average as well as looking at some geographical differences, using Alabama and Nevada as examples. (See the chart below.)
