DWQA QuestionsI’m 63 and my husband is 65 and on Medicare. Our income is less than 400% of FPL so I need help affording the premium in the Marketplace. Can we count what my husband has to pay for his Medicare premiums and supplemental and Part D premiums against what I will be required to contribute toward coverage in the Marketplace?

No. Your eligibility for premium tax credit subsidies and the amount of your premium tax credit will be based on your family income. The amount your husband pays for his Medicare, Part D, and supplemental insurance premium costs will not be taken into account.
