So if my income stops on February 25, do I still have to estimate my salary as if I would be making it for the full 12 months?
If not, my MAGI would be somewhere less than 59K, which would qualify for assistance. Am I understanding this correct?
I didn't say that.
I said your MAGI for the year, according to you, was going to be around $59,000.
Do you imagine that someone who has a MAGI of around $59,000 a year is going to qualify for any type of subsidy?
You do realize that people get a subsidy of various amounts if their income is within/below certain levels, right?
Did you click on the Kaiser link I provided? If you did, you would have the answer as to approximately how much insurance will cost you.
If you clicked on that Kaiser link, you would have read that assistance is available (in widely varying amounts) only if you make up to 400% of the poverty level or less. I'm sure you must have read that if you went to that calculator. If you didn't, you need to do that.
Here is a 2nd link that will also answer you questions as to when you can apply for insurance.
If you leave a job, you are able to apply for benefits because that is a change of life. Just like if you had a child, someone insured died, you married, got a job that provides insurance, etc. etc.
