Help Paying Marketplace Premiums: The Basics

My spouse and I qualify for a premium tax credit, but our doctors participate in different health plan networks so we want to sign up for two separate plans. Can we do that?

Yes. The Marketplace will allocate the monthly premium tax credit across the two plans. In most cases the Marketplace will allocate the monthly tax credit in proportion to the premiums for the two plans.

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.
