  1. I was direct off exchange with Kaiser, not Covered CA. I called Kaiser and they say they don’t have my 1095 B form. What do I do?

  2. The number Blue Cross Help Line 1-844-301-5617 you provided for help is a SCAM and they will take your personal data and SSN. Please remove it from your article immediately so people are not affected by this scam.

    People should only call the number in the customer service numbers back their BCBS cards.

    • Thank you very much for pointing this out. We have removed the number. According to agent-link.net the phone # was set up on a temporary basis to handle the influx of calls the first year that 1095 B’s came out.

      I’ve received several bulletins about this year’s 2016 1095 B where the deadline has been extended. I’ll see if I can forward them to you. This page does not get much traffic, so I haven’t put this at the top of my priorities.

  3. 1. What is the minimum income to qualify for a subsidy? Does withdrawal from ira count as income toward the qualifying amount?

    2. If I receive $12000 from disability and take$5000 from my Ira, do I qualify for a subsidy.(Assuming the qualifying amount is $17000.)

    3. Also, can I revise my previous year income tax and qualify for the previous subsidy as I mis -calculated originally and made $17000 .
