Tax Return or Current Income?

By on | No Comments

Question: I have a 2012 tax return that makes me not qualify the subsidies, but I lost the job now and don’t have income for 2013. Can I still qualify the subsidies?

Answer: Yes. Last year’s tax return is only a starting point that is helpful for people who don’t readily know what their taxable income is. If your current income is different than it was a year ago, the Covered California eligibility and enrollment process is flexible enough to adjust to the current income reality.
