Some families will need to pay a premium

You may not have to pay at all, but if you do, the amount you pay depends on your family income. You can be sure it's a good investment in your family's health.
If your family income is below 150% of the federal poverty level, you will pay no premium or charge. If it's above 150%, you will pay a monthly premium that is no more than 3% of your family income.
When you apply, be sure to ask what your premium would be.
