Question: My income is about $17,000, so my portion of the monthly premium is about $80/month. The subsidy pays the rest, which is about 90 percent of the total premium. I missed 4 premium payments in a row. Can they cancel my coverage even though they got 90 percent of the payment on time from the IRS?
Answer: Yes. If you are receiving premium assistance through Covered California, you have a 90-day grace period to pay all premiums that are owed. If you don’t pay in full by the end of the grace period, the insurance company can terminate coverage and return funds it received from the federal government for all but the first 30 days of the grace period.
