  3. Cost sharing reduction (CSR) plan data for the federally-facilitated exchanges (FFEs) was obtained from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Health Insurance Marketplace Landscape and Public Use Files.
  4. Eligibility to purchase CSR plans is based on income as follows:
    • Individuals with incomes from: 200-250 percent of the FPL are eligible for 73% Plans; 150-200 percent of the FPL are eligible for 87% Plans; and 100-150 percent of the FPL are eligible for 94% Plans.
    • While the scope of this report is limited to these three variations, there also are zero and limited cost sharing plans available to Native Alaskans and American Indians.
  5. State-based exchanges (SBEs) data obtained from plan summaries of benefits and coverage (SBCs) made available through the SBE websites. In cases where information was not available through the state website, Breakaway obtained the data directly from SBCs posted on the insurance carriers’ websites. If a carrier did not post the SBC, Breakaway did not include the plan in the dataset.
