PremiumHelp.org - United Way of the Greater Triangle

Do I Qualify for 2018?

  • You must first enroll in a qualifying Silver-Level plan at HealthCare.gov for the 2018 insurance year.
  • You MUST have been a participant in the 2017 PremiumHelp.org program to be considered for approval.
  • If your participation in PremiumHelp.org was terminated in 2017, you are not eligible to apply.
  • You also must live in Durham or Orange, or Wake County, NC and be a US citizen or Lawfully Present Immigrant.
  • Your income must also fall within the annual income range listed in the table below.

*For families/households with more than 8 persons, add $4,160 for each additional person to compute the minimum amount, and multiply that number by 1.75 for the maximum amount.


 

If you qualify:

  • PremiumHelp.org will pay the monthly premium balance for your insurance throughout the end of the coverage year in which you have enrolled.
  • PremiumHelp.org will not pay out-of-pocket costs such as co-pays and deductibles.
  • Monthly premium payments to your insurance provider will begin only after you are accepted into the PremiumHelp.org premium support program.
  • You must live in Durham, Orange, or Wake County, NC. PremiumHelp.Org will not pay your premium if you move out of these counties.
  • You will have to submit a form that will allow United Way and your insurance carrier to share PremiumHelp.org application information and ensure that payment continues throughout the coverage year. This includes only the information you provided in the application. The form will be mailed to you along with your acceptance letter.
  • Even if you were a 2017 participant in the PremiumHelp.org program, acceptance is not guaranteed.  You will be responsible for premium payments to your insurer if you are not accepted into PremiumHelp.org.
