Help Paying Marketplace Premiums: When Other Coverage Is Available

I’m eligible for COBRA but haven’t elected it yet. Does that affect my eligibility for Marketplace subsidies?

No, just being eligible for COBRA doesn’t affect your eligibility for premium tax credits or cost-sharing assistance if you enroll in a Marketplace plan.

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.
