You may be eligible to save money on your health insurance premium and lower your monthly bill.
What is a Premium Tax Credit?
It’s a type of financial assistance from the government that can help you save on your monthly premium payment. The tax credit, if you’re eligible, will go towards reducing your monthly premium. Your premium payment is what you pay each month for your monthly bill.
Do You Qualify?
Your eligibility is based on household size and estimated income along with other factors.
The amount of premium tax credit you may be eligible for is based on how your household income compares to Federal Poverty Levels. Federal Poverty Level (FPL) is the minimum income a family requires for basic needs like food or shelter. The government decides these FPL levels. You can check the levels on the Department of Health and Human Services website. The FPL range may change based on the state you live in.
On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan (ARP) with immediate impacts to current and prospective Marketplace members, including enhanced advance premium tax credit (APTC).
Under the ARP, Marketplace premium tax credits were increased and eligibility expanded for 2021 and 2022, allowing eligible consumers to receive more tax credits than under the ACA and eliminating the subsidy cap at 400% Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Premiums are capped at 8.5% of income regardless of income.
For 2022, you will be able to access premium tax credits you’re eligible for when you enroll in coverage or renew your coverage during Open Enrollment at Washington Healhplanfinder.
