This report provides information on the health insurance tax credit, which was established to encourage low-income workers to buy private health insurance for their families. GAO discusses (1) the estimated participation rate, in part to determine whether the potentially eligible population was aware of the health insurance credit, and (2) the health insurance tax credit's influence on low-wage workers' purchase of health insurance.
