We submitted comments to the Department of Treasury in support of a proposed rule that would fix the “family glitch,” which has left nearly 2.8 million children without access to affordable health insurance. The family glitch results from the exclusion of dependents in the calculation used to determine eligibility for Exchange premium subsidies even when they lack affordable employer-based coverage, and disproportionately impacts children. If finalized, the rule would provide significant premium and cost-sharing savings for families with incomes under 250% of the federal poverty level.
