Life Changes to the Marketplace
If you enrolled in insurance coverage through the Health Insurance
Marketplace, you are required to report changes to the Marketplace when they
happen, like changes to your household income or family size, because they may
affect your eligibility for the advance payments of the premium tax credits.
Changes in circumstances that you should report to the Marketplace include,
but are not limited to:
- increases or decreases in your household income,
including lump sum payments like a lump sum payment of Social Security
- marriage or divorce
- the birth or adoption of a child
- starting a job with health insurance
- gaining or losing your eligibility for other health
- changing your residence
For the full list of changes you should report, visit HealthCare.gov.
changes will help you avoid getting too much or too little advance payment
of the premium tax credit. Getting too much means you may owe additional
money or get a smaller refund when you file your taxes. Getting too little
could mean missing premium assistance to reduce your monthly premiums.
Therefore, it is important that you report changes in circumstances that may
have occurred since you signed up for your plan.
When you report a change, you may be eligible
for a Special Enrollment Period. For more information, visit HealthCare.gov. #NewsandInformation #IRS #Tax #PersonalIncomeTax #IndividualIncomeTax #Healthcare
