Effect of Divorce on Eligibility?

By on | No Comments

Question: I will be divorced before the end of the year. My 2019 subsidy was based on 2-person household. How does that impact my Covered California going forward?

Answer: You will file your 2019 tax return as a single person. Your premium assistance for 2019 was based on your married household income. The IRS will recalculate your 2019 assistance based on your individual income. Should there be an adjustment required it will be part of your tax bill for 2019. Change your marital status and adjust your income with Covered California by December 15 for changes to be effective January 1, 2020.
