Cost Sharing Reduction (CSR) Tiers
Changes to income can change eligibility. Much of the recommended Qualified Health Plan shopping are based on eligibility of Cost-Sharing Reduction (CSR) tier per household members seeking coverage. The CSR tiers drives the system to make recommendations for different “Groups”.
What are Cost Sharing Reduction (CSR) Tiers?
Cost Sharing Reductions (CSR) reduce the copay, deductible, and other out-of-pocket costs for individuals and families that are eligible based on many different factors including eligibility for tax credits. These out-of-pocket savings apply only to silver-level Qualified Health Plans. There are no CSRs for platinum, gold, bronze, or catastrophic health plans, and they are not available for Qualified Dental Plans. American Indian/Alaskan Native (AI/AN) customers may be eligible for CSRs on additional Qualified Health Plan types.
