  33.  If the average monthly premiums for Medicare Part C - were $700 per individual and $1,050 per family (comparable to the 2nd lowest cost ACA Silver Plan) and only 40% of the ACA participants (3.6 million) are eligible for premium subsidies (the average subsidy is 30% for the individual and 60% for the family) with an equal distribution of both, the plan would cost only 18.5 billion in premium subsidies next year.
