The <tt>ptc.py</tt> script output for this sample file and the two
policy files described above are as follows:

<tt>python ptc.py sample_18_example aca_current_law.json</tt><br>

<tt>1 4598.54 194 0.0602 1444.80 1 6043.34</tt>

The output shows that this individual has income equal to 194 percent
of the federal poverty level, which implies that under current-law ACA
policy this individual is expected to pay slightly more than six
percent of income on health insurance, which comes to almost 1445
dollars.  These results are the same in the two runs because the
assumed poverty-level inflation rate is the same in the two runs.  The

from 139 to 140 percent of the federal poverty level.  And there were
many small differences in the IRS Form 8962 "applicable figure" caused
by the Kaiser calculator approximating the "applicable figure"
function in a way that slightly overstates the "applicable figure"
consistently across all levels of modified AGI as a percent of the
federal poverty level (magi_pct).  For example, in the Kaiser
calculator the "applicable figure" for those with magi_pct between 300
and 400 is consistently 0.0956 instead of the 0.0950 specified in IRS
Form 8962.  In addition, the "applicable figure" function used in the
Kaiser calculator apparently does not use integer values of magi_pct,
and therefore, a few large differences occur for tax filing units with
magi_pct values close to where the function experiences a
discontinuity (for example, at 100 and 400 magi_pct).  But overall,
there is extensive and close agreement between the Kaiser calculator
results and the results produced by the <tt>ptc.py</tt> script for
2015.
