The Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC) is a federal subsidy available to individuals and families who earn less than 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) when enrolling in plans through the Health Insurance Marketplace. This subsidy helps to pay part of your health insurance premiums to make your insurance more affordable.
If you have been asked for supporting documentation by the Health Insurance Marketplace, send your supporting documents in to the Health Insurance Marketplace now. You have just 30 days from the day you enroll to show proof to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that you qualify for financial help with your premiums. It is important to send any missing documents or you will lose your eligibility for Marketplace coverage.
