If Obamacare is Repealed, What Happens to Subsidies?

By on | 1 Comment

Question: I’m getting a monthly subsidy that lowers the premium of my Covered California plan. What will happen to this subsidy if Obamacare is repealed?

Answer: It seems likely that Obamacare will be repealed soon, but it will take a year or two to build a system to replace it. Subsidies will probably continue to be funded through 2017 and perhaps beyond. The new administration has proposed some new ideas for a replacement plan, for example subsidies based on age rather than income.
