A new study says about 544,000 Ohioans will be eligible for tax credits under the federal health care law if they purchase coverage through the new health insurance marketplaces.
To qualify, people must earn between 100 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level. That's between $23,550 and $94,200 annually for a family of four. They cannot be eligible for affordable coverage from an employer or from Medicaid or Medicare.
The report also estimates that Ohio has about 812,000 potential customers for the exchange, which is run by Washington.
