Consumer Guide for Annual Household Income in Healthcare Marketplace

Consumer Guide for Annual Household Income Data Matching Issues

This is a guide to help you understand how the Marketplace uses annual household income to decide whether you qualify for help paying for health coverage through the Marketplace. It also explains how to send the Marketplace proof of income if your information wasn’t verified by our data sources when you applied. This is known as an income data matching issue. The Marketplace generates income data matching issues for an application when it cannot immediately verify your information with our data sources. The Marketplace tells you about data matching issues in order to help you get the correct amount of financial assistance and to help protect you against owing money back when you file your taxes. If you don’t resolve an annual income data matching issue, you could lose all or some of your financial assistance to help pay for your health coverage.
