The Affordable Care Act (ACA) benchmark for determining the affordability of employer-sponsored health coverage will significantly decrease to 9.12% of an employee’s household income for the 2023 plan year. This is a significant decrease from the 2022 level of 9.61%. This affordability percentage affects an individual’s eligibility for federally subsidized coverage from a marketplace exchange. It also can potentially affect the employer’s liability for shared-responsibility assessments.
