Same-Sex Couples   

Can I apply for financial help with my spouse or partner?

Yes, if you are legally married and file your federal taxes jointly with your spouse, you can apply jointly for financial help to make your coverage more affordable. The amount of financial help depends on your income. You may qualify for financial help if you and your spouse’s annual income is between about $16,000 and $66,000. In fact, over 8 out of 10 people who enroll through healthcare.gov qualify for financial help, and most people find plans available for $75 or less per month. Learn if your income level qualifies you and your spouse for savings here.

If you qualify, you will receive a tax credit that lowers the amount that you pay for insurance each month. Depending on your income, you may also qualify for cost-sharing reductions that lower the amount you pay in co-pays, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket costs. Learn whether you might qualify for financial help using this quick calculator.
