You may be eligible for a health insurance subsidy in 2018 if your total household income falls within certain limits.
The income cutoffs are tied to the Federal Poverty Level and are adjusted each year.
The 2018 figures are in the chart below.
To use the chart:
- Locate the number of people in your household along the top row. This is the number of people on your federal tax return.
- Look in the corresponding column to see if your projected 2018 adjusted gross income (AGI) falls within the limits shown. (AGI is the figure on line 37 of your Form 1040.)
If you think your total 2018 household AGI will be within the limits, you may be eligible for a subsidy.
