Re: Are you eligible for a health insurance subsidy?

I think 99% of the people reading this thread would have had no idea that this is treated as social benefits, so unfortunately could have caused much pain to people several years down the road.

I don't think anyone who saw this thread & had a low income would bother to ask if it's social benefits, it's been sold to them as a 'subsidy'
I'm not sure if folk realise the implications of receiving social benefits anyway. Maybe Jenny could add a sentence at the top of the first post to point this out but since folk so often don't read the posts properly and you have to understand the social system a bit to understand problems which might come up later, I don't know if it would help.
