Question: I just separated from my husband, living on my own. I make $25,000/year income myself. We filed taxes together last year. Will I have a problem enrolling in a plan for 2017? I don't have an individual income tax return to show. I am wondering how that works.
Answer: You can be eligible for Covered California coverage for 2017 as a 1-person household, if you get divorced and file a single taxpayer return for the 2017 tax year. Married filing separately will not work.
