Include everyone in your household who you also claim on your taxes. For some families, this may mean changing your household each year. Include family members whether they need insurance or not.
Example 1: A single mom who has 2 kids that she claims on her taxes, but the children both have insurance through Medicaid or CHIP. She would have a household size of 3 people.
Eample 2: Parents with one 22 year old child that is in college. Claiming this child in your household depends on if the child has a job that pays more than $10k per year. If the child does not work or makes less than $10k per year, then claiming this child as a dependent and inlcuding them in your household and health insurance plan would be the best and most affordable option for everyone. If the child works, it may be more affordable for the child to file their taxes on their own and get their own health insurance plan.
Example 3: Husband and wife looking to retire. Wife is 63 years old and husband is 65 years old. This would be a household size of 2 people with only the wife on the health insurance plan. Husband most likely will qualify for Medicare. We can help you know your options for Medicare including Medicare Supplements, prescription drug plans and Medicare Advantage plans.
Income or Adjusted Gross Income
As a general rule, your estimated income is your adjusted gross income, or AGI, for the current year we are in. This means that if you are a business owner, it is after your expences and depreciation. You'll also deduct any contributions to an HSA and IRA and any child support.
Example 1: Single mom with 2 children that works a part time job and recieves child support. She would only count the income from her part time job. Child support does not count towards your income estimate.
Example 2: Young couple both working part time jobs while going to college. They would count both of their incomes and deduct any contributions to HSA and IRAs.
Example 3: Family with 3 kids. 2 live at home, oldest child is in college. Child does not work and family owns their own business. They would estimate what they expect their AGI to be for the current year. Consider any big purchases that you will be making this year and consult a tax professional on your deductions. Most likely what you are taking home is much larger than your AGI is.
We hope this helps you calculate your income closer to get an acurate health insurance quote. You want to be as close to your correct income as possible to avoid any subsidy repayment. Guessing too high means you may be paying too much for health insurance. Guessing too low may mean you pay some of those subsidies back at tax time. If you'd like to know what that repayment would be, contact one of our local agents today.
