Study: 313,000 in Arizona can get insurance subsidies

PHOENIX -- A new study said nearly 60 percent of Arizonans who can buy health insurance through the federal marketplace will qualify for a tax subsidy.

The analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation released Tuesday looked at people without company-provided insurance who don't qualify for Medicaid plans for the very poor.

That marketplace in Arizona is about 551,000 people. An estimated 313,000 will qualify for a subsidy based in their income that will party offset the cost of buying a policy. The insurance can be bought through the federal government's health insurance marketplace.

About 20 percent of Arizona's 6.5 million residents don't have insurance. At least 300,000 are expected to get Medicaid coverage for the poor starting Jan. 1.

Those in the country illegally don't qualify for subsidies.
