Lost Subsidy. Why?

By on | No Comments

Question: According to the website I will be losing premium assistance in 2016. I received around 180 dollars of assistance per month last year and I make almost exactly the same as I did before. Why did I lose my subsidy?

Answer: Probably because your 2014 tax return had an adjusted gross income higher than the estimated income you first entered. Covered California did not receive this information from the IRS until mid-2015, so the income adjustment was applied to the 2016 tax year.
