Question: I lost my job in Nov 2015. I projected our 2016 income to be $33,000 which includes my husband's annual social security of $13,000. My unemployment ran out in July in which I collected a total of $10,800 making our gross 2016 income of $24,000. I have yet to get another job and have not had an interview. With tax exemptions our adjusted gross income will be below 138% of FPL. We have Silver PPO. How will this affect the ACA subsidies I've received to date and premiums I paid?
Answer: In 2017, you will be eligible for Medi-Cal. You will not have to pay back any of the advanced premium tax credits you received in 2016.
