Fix the family glitch

Access to subsidies for exchange-based policies depends on a person’s income and lack of access to “affordable” employer-sponsored coverage. Unfortunately, the ACA defines “affordable” based on the cost of an individual policy, not a family policy, leaving some working families without access to both affordable care and subsidies. This unanticipated “family glitch” flaw could affect an estimated two to four million dependents, including up to 500,000 children. O’Malley will work to provide the law’s intended benefits of affordable coverage to families who need coverage.
