Question: I have an anthem bronze ppo plan for which I am paying 100 percent of the monthly premium (no subsidy). Reading about the 1095a statement, I NOTICED a column called slcsp. WHAT IS THAT, AND DOES IT APPLY TO SOMEONE IN MY SITUATION? I DON'T QUALIFY FOR ENHANCED SILVER BENEFITS. A WEBSITE I looked at said if the column reads 0 IT IS INCORRECT. I ASSUME IT WOULD READ 0 SINCE I did not get any enhanced silver plan benefits.
Answer: The second-lowest cost silver plan (SLCSP) that applies to you is usually found on your Form 1095-A. If you receive premium assistance during the year, you need to know the SLCSP to figure out your final premium tax credit for the year. If you did not receive any premium assistance during the year, the advance premium tax credit field should be $0. The The SLCSP field may be zero too, since it doesn't matter.
