What if the amount of my tax credit changes but I don't qualify to change plans?

If you are currently enrolled in a qualified health plan through Maryland Health Connection and experience a change in income or other life event that changes your tax credit amount but you do not qualify for a special enrollment period, the new amount of tax credit will be sent to your insurance company, and you will receive an updated bill that reflects the new tax credit amount.

As with your original enrollment, if you are eligible for a tax credit, you may elect to: (1) take the full amount you are eligible for each month in advance to apply towards your monthly premium cost; (2) take a smaller amount of tax credit each month than the full amount you are eligible for in advance; or (3) not take any part of the credit in advance monthly and instead receive your full tax credit for 2015 on your 2015 tax filing.
