Notes of Trump vs. Obamacare:
New President Trump 3-1-2017 in the US Congress formally promised his
government would continue to retain the Obamacare two main terms: no
pre-existing condition limitation and offering tax credit to help people to buy
health insurance. This means that two essentials of the Obamacare, for most
people who received benefits from the ACA, are still retaining. In other words,
they can still save money when they buy health insurance. See attachment.
Therefore, according to above information, you can still
apply for tax credit after 1-31-2017, the deadline of Obamacare open enrollment,
if any special events occurred within 30 or 60 days as listed below:
1.) Your OHP insurance was terminated after lost eligibility due to increased income or assets, reduced family members, changed legal status or residency, etc. You should have a termination letter from the OHP. (change from OHP to tax credit of ACA-Obamacare)
2.) Lost employer provided health insurance due to job changed or marriage changed; (change from private market to tax credit of ACA-Obamacare)
3.) New residents who lost health insurance due to permanent relocation including moved into the US from a foreign country; (change from any original plans to tax credit of ACA-Obamacare)
