Affordable Care Act

2018-Premium tax credit

Answer:

For 2018, you are required to have minimum essential health coverage through an employer plan, a government program, or other plan, or pay a penalty. The mandate does not apply after 2018.

To help those of modest means pay premiums for coverage obtained from a government exchange (Marketplace), there’s a premium tax credit . Eligibility for this advanceable, refundable tax credit depends on your household income and other factors.

The credit continues to be available even though the individual mandate ends after 2018.
