"I'm not sure why you would think a more expensive plan will be "paid for." Her subsidy will remain at $2,412, no matter what the cost of her plan is - so the question is: what is the cost of the silver plan? If it's more than $2,412, she will have to pay the difference. That said, if it's only a little more than $2,412, then the better coverage might be worth paying a little more."

What I meant is that if the Bronze plan is $2051 and her tax credit is $2412, she has $361 more to play with so she might want to check out the Silver plan pricing.

So that helps a lot. Thanks again AJ!
