How will I know if I’m eligible for financial assistance (tax credits) to help purchase health insurance outside of Veterans Affairs?

Veterans Affairs (VA) cannot determine if you can qualify for tax credits. You must apply through Connect for Health Colorado Marketplace to find out if you can get a tax credit to help lower the costs on your monthly premiums for private health insurance plans. Remember, if you are enrolled in a VA health care program, you do not need to take additional steps to meet the health coverage requirements under the health care law. Also, if you are enrolled in VA health care, your VA coverage meets the Federal requirement for health care coverage so you are not eligible for a tax credit to help buy insurance through the Connect for Health Colorado Marketplace.
