Special Note about Income Changes

Special Note about Income Changes

Reporting a change to your income may change the how much help paying for costs you receive if you applied for subsidies.

  • If you receive an Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC) and you report an income increase, you may see a decrease in APTC.
  • If you report an income that is less, you may see an increase in APTC.
  • If you are now enrolled in a Health Connector plan with no APTC and your income is lower— below 400% the Federal Poverty Level (FPL)—and you applied for coverage and help paying costs, then you may become eligible for APTC.
  • If you report an income that is at or below 300% FPL, you may be eligible for ConnectorCare plans.
  • If you are enrolled in ConnectorCare and report an increase or decrease in income that is still at or below 300% FPL, then your Plan Type may change. Learn more about Plan Types →
  • If you report an income that is at or below 133% FPL, you may qualify for MassHealth coverage.
