Answering certain information incorrectly on your application can make you ineligible for a premium tax credit subsidy and display a much higher premium!
Because Stride's marketplace plan prices are inclusive of any eligible subsidies, there are a few questions on the application that need to be answered a certain way in order to receive the premium assistance!
These are the application questions that often lead to people losing their subsidy:
- Answering that you do not want your eligibility for financial assistance determined in the application
- Indicating that you do not plan on filing a tax return for 2020
- Indicating that you are married but plan on filing separately from your spouse
- Indicating that you are enrolled in or eligible for minimum essential coverage elsewhere (like through an employer or Medicaid)
If you answered any of the questions above incorrectly, login here to change the answers on your application.
Indicate that you want your eligibility for financial assistance determined, that you plan to file taxes, and if married, select that you are filing jointly with your spouse.
- Note, if you are enrolled in other minimum essential coverage like through an employer or Medicaid, you will not be eligible for a tax credit subsidy and will only see full priced plans.
Once you've submitted the necessary updates to your application, your eligibility results will redetermine if you're eligible for a premium tax credit subsidy!
