Millions More May Be Eligible for Obamacare Help, U.S. Says

Millions of people in the U.S. may be missing out on funds available under Obamacare to help them afford health insurance, the federal government said, as the fourth sign-up season for the program approaches.

About 2.5 million people with individual or family insurance plans outside of Obamacare could be eligible for tax subsidies if they bought through the program, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services said in a report Tuesday. In addition, about 9 million people who are uninsured may be eligible for subsidies to help them buy plans, according to the report.
