Question: I had Covered California with a big subsidy in 2016 because of my low income. I lost my job in October, so my income will be even lower than it was when I applied for coverage. I am now eligible for Medi-Cal. Will I have to repay the premium tax credits that got this year?
Answer: No. You are still eligible for the tax credits you received last year. If your income later fell below the Medi-Cal eligibility level, you will not be required to repay the premium tax credit when you file your tax return.
