The States With the Cheapest and Most Expensive Health Insurance

Enrollment in the federal health insurance marketplace reached a record high this year. The increase was likely due to increased premium tax credits for the coverage and extended eligibility that was part of the American Rescue Plan signed by President Joe Biden in 2021, according to the Urban Institute.

But the tax credits are due to expire at the end of this year. The Urban Institute says that if the enhancements are not extended, 3.1 million more people will be uninsured in 2023, and enrollees who remain will spend hundreds of dollars more per person on premiums.
