The Kaiser Family Foundation has created a Health Insurance Subsidy Calculator.  This tool is designed to provide estimates of health insurance premiums and subsidies for people who purchase insurance on their own in new health insurance exchanges created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The calculator allows you to enter different income levels, ages, and family sizes to get an estimate of your eligibility for subsidies and how much you could spend on health insurance.  The frequently asked questions section covers information about subsidies toward insurance premiums, the impact of a person’s age or location on premiums, the actuarial value of health insurance, and much more.
