CoveredCa Changed Silver 94 to Silver 87?

By on | No Comments

Question: I qualified for Silver 94 for 2016. My income and household size will stay the same for 2017, but CC only give me the option for Silver 87. Why is that?

Answer: Households with income 139% to 150% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) are eligible for enhanced Silver 94 Plans. Your income was in that range in 2016, but apparently it is now between 151% and 200% FPl making you eligible for enhanced Silver 87 plans. Have a look at the income section of your Covered California account. You will probably find that your income has been increased. Covered California can and does change income figures when they receive data from the IRS that does not match your income estimate.
