The cheapest gold plan will have lower premiums than the least-expensive silver plan in 459 counties next year once subsidies are factored in, Kaiser found.
ACA Marketplace uncertainty is the blight that led to increased premiums in previous years, and it will lead to even greater increases for the 2018 plan year. Many plans have changes, so you might be given a plan that doesn't work for you, or is more expensive than you planned.
The estimate from S&P concludes that enrollment next year could be seven to 13 percent lower than the 12.2 million people who signed up in 2017. (If it's not, and you do nothing, your premiums could jump.) If you enroll in a silver plan and your income is below 250% of the federal poverty level-$16,240 for a two-person household in 2017-you may also qualify for extra savings on out-of-pocket costs.

That decline in the ranks of the uninsured includes Delawareans who could not get coverage before the Affordable Care Act because of pre-existing conditions.
