Currently, there are no limitations on how long someone may be eligible to receive a tax credit. This means that you can continue to receive tax credits as long as you are considered “eligible” under the requirements. However, if your income changes, then you may lose a portion or all of your tax credit. It is important to notify Covered California in the event that your income level may fluctuate to prevent potential reductions or eligibility for tax credits.
