      the 2012-2013 (thru June 30, 2013) Federal Poverty Level [FPL] table.

      Problem is, for 1 person or an individual, the 400% annual income cut off is just $44,680.

      So presumably, if one make $44,681 annual income--which isn't exactly a fortune, especially if you're the sole person responsible for all your household expenses and have a car payment--you will not be eligible for any federal subsidy.

      Obviously, the degree of any hardship depends partly on what part of the country one lives in.

      Here's the link to the FPL Table.
