Household Income for 2 Individuals

By on | No Comments

Question: I share my house with a 51 year old woman. Her income is below the federal poverty level. She currently has no job and no health insurance. I think in 2014 she could be eligible for Medi-cal under the ACA. Our finances are separate and we files individual returns. If my income is combined with hers for household income and that would exclude her from Medi-Cal. We are not married and have no common children. Does only her income count in this case?

Answer: Covered California would view you as individuals, each with their own income, which would be used as the basis for assistance eligibility either for Med-Cal or Covered California tax credits (subsidies).
