Americans who buy health insurance outside their jobs next year can expect an average tax credit of nearly $2,700 to help them obtain coverage on the new state insurance marketplaces, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.

The tax credits will vary by household income and family size, as well as the cost of coverage in a particular state and local area. About 26 million low- and moderate-income people will be eligible for the tax credits to help pay for individual coverage next year on their state marketplaces, the online health insurance shopping malls created by the Affordable Care Act.
