Premium Assistance

Premium Assistance

The General Assembly has appropriated funds for premium assistance to make monthly premiums more affordable for existing low-income members. The State's Board of Directors has determined the structure of the premium assistance program as listed below.

Premium assistance:

  • May be available for applicants with a family income up to $75,000 a year.
  • Is limited to available funding. When all premium assistance money is in use, the State will only award new premium assistance as funds become available again.
  • Will range from 20% of premium to 60% of premium based on household income.
  • Is only available for those who select Plan One ($1000 Deductible), which has the lowest deductible and highest premiums.

Additional premium assistance information is available in the Instructions Booklet.
