  • Answer questions for people in your family who are on your federal tax return.
  • If you don't file federal taxes, just answer for family members living with you, including your spouse and children under 21.
  • You must answer each question with a number, even if it is 0.

Eligibility for health coverage is based on income plus other factors. This tool screens for income only. You may qualify for coverage based on other things like age or disability. To get a full review, you need to apply.
