Affordable Care Act
Refer to this checklist when applying for subsidy.
This data you enter will be used to estimate your potential subsidy, subject to certain limitations. It is an estimate from eHealth, not the federal government.
Enter the taxable income from your most recent income tax return, and adjust for changes to your income and deductions for the coming year. (Refer to the infographic below for a breakdown of modified adjusted gross income.)
Enter the number of people, including yourself, that you will claim on your tax return for income you earn in the coming year. Note that, in some cases, this may not necessarily be the same number of people who reside in your household.
