ACA open enrollment – How do CSR’s work?

By Terry Savage on December 04, 2015 | Insurance

Enrolling via the marketplace for the first time this year. Your article in the Tribune mentions cost sharing reductions potentially reducing costs for silver plans, but I can’t find any mention of this in heathcare.gov. Our estimated income input on the website to find plans is within the CSR limits, but I could not see where/how the CSR’s come into play. Thank you!!!

Terry Says:  I couldn’t believe it, but I searched Healthcare.gov myself and there was no mention.  And it’s really important!  So here is a link to a terrific analysis of CSRs by the Kaiser Family Foundation, which specializes in healthcare research.  It expands on what I said in my column.
