From Obamacare to Retirement Plans: Exploring Dependable Coverage’s All-in-One Solutions


In an ever-evolving landscape of healthcare and retirement planning, finding comprehensive and dependable coverage is crucial. Dependable Coverage Solutions aims to bridge the gap between the Affordable Care Act (commonly known as Obamacare) and retirement plans. Our mission is to empower early retirees with the knowledge and strategies needed to navigate the complexities of insurance, subsidies, and financial planning.

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)

A Bit of Tease for Early Retirees

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) offers a tantalizing prospect for those not yet eligible for Medicare. On one hand, it provides an insurance option at potentially lower costs than what was previously available. We have the individual mandate to thank for that. However, even a more modest premium can be challenging for early retirees to afford. This is where the ACA’s subsidies come into play.

Understanding Subsidies

  • Income Threshold: The highest household income that qualifies for a subsidy is 400 percent of the federal poverty level. For an individual in 2013, that amount was $45,960, and for a family of two, it was $62,040. It’s likely to be slightly higher in 2014. If household income exceeds this threshold by even one dollar, the subsidy is lost.

Subsidy Amount: The subsidy decreases as household income increases. For example:

  • Household incomes between 200 and 250 percent of the federal poverty level require paying 6.3 to 8.05 percent of income toward health insurance premiums.
  • Household incomes between 300 and 400 percent must contribute 9.5 percent of income toward premiums.

Tax Planning and Subsidies

Armed with this knowledge and a little tax planning, early retirees can potentially save a bundle. Here’s how:

  • Reducing Household Income: Household income under Obamacare is based on Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI). Creative ways to reduce MAGI include.
  • Strategic Withdrawals: Opt for Roth IRA withdrawals instead of traditional IRA withdrawals to minimize taxable income.
  • Health Savings Account (HSA): Contribute to an HSA, which reduces your MAGI.
  • Tax Credits: Take advantage of tax credits for education expenses or energy-efficient home improvements.
  • Leveraging Tax Deductions: Deductible expenses, such as medical expenses exceeding 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross income, can lower your MAGI.
