CMS Guidance for Victims of Domestic Violence (3 31 2014)
This guidance from HHS explains how the state and federal marketplaces may address premium tax credit eligibility for survivors of domestic violence who are still married. In short, the federal marketplace may allow such individuals to indicate that they are unmarried for purposes of premium tax credit eligibility. The HHS guidance also confirms the 60-day special enrollment period for survivors of domestic violence from April 1st to May 30th.
