I am 63 years old and retired. I currently purchase health insurance through the HealthCare Marketplace and receive a subsidy. My income is a small pension, Social Security and distributions I request quarterly from an IRA. I have kept those IRA distributions at a level that has kept me below the max income level needed to receive an ACA subsidy. In August of next year, 2020, I will turn 65 and go on Medicare and stop the insurance I have now. How will that figure into the max income level needed to receive a subsidy for 2/3 of the year? Will that income level still be the stated max income even though I will not receive a subsidy for 4 months of the year?
