Help Paying Marketplace Premiums: Defining Income and Household

I have a college scholarship that covers my tuition and fees. Do I count that as income in determining my eligibility for subsidies?

Scholarship and fellowship payments for tuition and fees and course-related expenses required of all students are not counted as income in determining your eligibility. Payments for room and board are included.

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.
