Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I had to repay part or all of my advance premium tax credit on my taxes. How do I avoid having to repay next year?

To avoid having to repay advance premium tax credits, you should:

  • Make sure that DC Health Link has your most up-to-date income.
  • Report changes in your income, household size, and other offers of health insurance coverage to DC Health Link as quickly as possible.
  • Consider taking less than the full amount. You can select any amount of your premium tax credit to take in advance, and receive the remainder back on your taxes if you end up being eligible for a larger tax credit than you took.
