A 30-year-old fast food cook living in Chicago and making $18,000 a year could expect to pay, on average, $98 a month for a bronze plan after receiving financial assistance. The same worker could expect to pay $156 a month for a silver plan, also after a subsidy.

About this Article

How much will an Illinois fast food cook pay for insurance under President Barack Obama's health care law? How about a preschool teacher? Or a freelance writer?
