Reference Guide: Yearly Guidelines and Thresholds

Eligibility for subsidies in the Marketplace is determined in part by using specific percentages and thresholds that are indexed and change each enrollment year.

In addition, people who received advance premium tax credits (APTC) in the prior enrollment year will need to complete a tax return for that year and will need to use percentages and thresholds applicable to that tax year.

This reference guide lists all the indexed guidelines and thresholds that change each enrollment year.
