Financial Help Repayment Limits
We determine how much financial help you get from the federal government based on the income, family size, and residential ZIP code you entered on your application for health insurance. When you file your taxes, if your income is less than what you told us on your application, you may receive a credit or refund. If your income is more than what you told us on your application, you may have to repay some or all of the advanced premium tax credits that you got.
There are limits to the amount you may need to repay, depending on your income and if you file taxes as “Single” or another filing status. The limits are calculated based on the federal poverty level (FPL). See the table at the bottom of the page to learn your FPL.
These are the repayment limits for the federal premium tax credit for the 2022 tax year:
|Household Income||Single||All other filers|
|Less than 200% FPL||$325||$650|
|200% - 300% FPL||$825||$1,650|
|300% - 400% FPL||$1,400||$2,800|
|Over 400% FPL||No limit||No limit|
Example 1: A single individual with income under $25,760 would have to repay no more than $325 if they received too much federal premium tax credit.
A single individual with income between $25,760 and $38,640 would have to repay no more than $825 if they received too much federal premium tax credit.
Example 2: A household of two with income under $34,840 would have to repay no more than $650 if they received too much federal premium tax credit.
A household of two with income between $34,840 and $52,260 would have to repay no more than $1,650 if they received too much federal premium tax credit.
