Discounts are available through the Marketplace at Healthcare.gov

Your income and family size may qualify you for two kinds of discounts for a Health Tradition plan you select in the Marketplace at Healthcare.gov or get through a Health Tradition agent.

The first type of discount is the Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC). When you apply through the Marketplace, you will see if you qualify for the Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC). You will also see if you qualify for the second type of discount, called reduced cost-sharing plans.

Health Tradition has reduced cost-sharing Silver plans

Reduced cost-sharing lowers your out-of-pocket cost such as doctor visit copays. Reduced cost-sharing plans are a special category of Silver plans that increase coverage from about 70% of typical expected medical costs (the standard Silver plan) to 73%, 87% or even 95% (exceeding even Platinum level plans).

To view plan information prior to applying, please see the Summaries of Benefits and Coverages and look for Silver reduced cost-sharing plans. Enrollment for cost-sharing plans is through the Marketplace. Enroll online yourself or ask an agent to assist.
