Consent, Income and Tax Attestation Notice
Next week, April 2017 Covered California will send a notice to those consumers at risk of losing their Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC) and/or cost-sharing reductions for their 2017 health insurance coverage.
A consumer’s financial assistance may end because of one or more of the following reasons:
- The consumer’s consent to allow Covered California to use computer sources to check their income and family size, including information from tax returns, has expired.
- The consumer may not have filed a 2015 federal income tax return for their household to reconcile the Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC) used to lower plan premium costs during 2015.
- The consumer’s household income may be too high.
Please note: Per law and regulations, Covered CA agents cannot provide any tax filing advice under any circumstance or answer any tax filing questions.
