Help Paying Marketplace Premiums: Defining Income and Household

Does my 2020 Recovery Rebate of $1,200 count as income when I apply for Marketplace subsidies?

No.  The 2020 Recovery Rebate is not taxed as income.  It will not affect your eligibility for Marketplace subsidies or Medicaid.

While we have made every effort to provide accurate information in these FAQs, people should contact the health insurance Marketplace or Medicaid agency in their state for guidance on their specific circumstances.
