My income is below the federal poverty level and my state has not elected to expand Medicaid eligibility. Can I qualify for premium tax credits?

Individuals with no coverage | Eligibility for Premium Tax Credits and Cost-Sharing Reductions |

No, your income is too low to qualify for premium tax credits, but check with a Marketplace navigator via’s Find Local Help page, to see if there are other options you might be eligible for. Note that if you are a lawfully present immigrant and have an income below 100 percent of the federal poverty level, and are in the waiting period or otherwise ineligible for your state's Medicaid coverage, you are eligible for premium tax credits. (26 C.F.R. § 1.36B-2(b).)
