Family Glitch

The family glitch is a rule that prevents some families with employer-sponsored health insurance from receiving financial assistance for marketplace coverage. It happens when the employer's coverage is considered "affordable" for the employee, even if it's not affordable for the entire family. This makes marketplace coverage too expensive for many families, leaving them with limited options.
