Help Paying Marketplace Premiums: Defining Income and Household

Is the value of my house counted in determining my eligibility for premium tax credits in the Marketplace?

View this question in Spanish

No, assets are not counted. So the value of your house, car, retirement savings, etc. will not affect your eligibility for premium tax credits. Only your income is considered.

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.
