What income should I include on my application for financial help?

The income you report on your application that we use to determine how much financial help you can receive is called your Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI). In general, it is your estimated adjusted gross income (the income you report when you file your federal taxes) plus any non-taxable Social Security, tax-exempt interest, or foreign income you have for the year for which you are applying. Remember to report income changes to Connect for Health Colorado to make sure you’re getting the right amount of Premium Tax Credit during the year.

Information about how to file taxes, including what incomes and allowances should be included, can be found on the IRS website.
