Question: My large employer said that before 2015, they will start offering coverage that costs less than 9.5% of income for self-only, but how will my employer know how much income my husband has? Is my employer allowed to ask employees to report or prove their household income? I think it is in my interest to have the company calculate 9.5% of just the employees wages…if the company adds the income of our husbands/wives, 9.5% could be much more expensive. Thanks for your help!
Answer: Your household income(employee and spouse) will be included in the affordability limit of 9.5% income.
