Question: How are they going to calculate the income for domestic partners? I understand if people are married, it’s going to be both salaries. But if you are not - like, we are in a domestic partnership - then how are they going to calculate this?
Answer: Usually, if you file taxes together, you shop for insurance together. Since California does not recognize domestic partnerships for opposite-sex partners (unless over the age of 62), each can apply on the exchange as an individual. Whether one or both partners qualifies for a subsidy, depends on his or her income alone.
