What information do I need to gather to enroll in Obamacare? Until January 15, the enrollment period will be open for subsidized health plans for the year 2023 that are granted under the protection of the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act, better known as Obamacare. Many people want to benefit from and have subsidized health insurance, but are unaware of the documents they need to have ready at the time of enrollment.
It is essential that you know that the minimum requirements to benefit from this subsidy are to be a legal resident in the US, have a social security number, and enter between 100% and 400% of the federal poverty level.
When you call a Univista agent to choose and enroll in a health plan, they will ask for your current address and full name. You will need to have your federal tax information handy, explain how you file your taxes, whether you file with your spouse or each file on your own, and whether you have a tax dependent, that is, a dependent child. You must also submit information about your employer and the income of everyone in your household. It’s best to go by the data, as it appears on the W-2 form your employer gives you at the end of the year. Or, the 1099 form, if you are self-employed. You should also have the social security numbers of all household members on hand.
The agent will also ask you about other income, in addition to your salary, whether it is retirement, pension, or any money you receive for rent or another type of taxable income.
It’s a good idea to have all of the above information handy before you call to enroll. Also, list any questions about the enrollment process and possible benefits based on your particular situation.
The Health Marketplace may request proof of your income to verify the information given at the time of enrollment.
Don’t sign up at the last minute so you can calmly compare different plans and get the most out of the benefits they offer. What information do I need to gather to enroll in Obamacare?
