If you are a resident of California and have enrolled or are planning to enroll in Covered California, you may be asked to provide Income Proof for Covered California. This is to ensure that you are eligible for the premium assistance offered by Covered California. 

The income proof can be in the form of tax returns, pay stubs, or other documents that show your income. If you receive a request for income proof, it is important to respond promptly to ensure your enrollment runs smoothly. 

Here are some steps you can take to respond to the income proof request:

  1. Review the request carefully: Take the time to read it thoroughly and ensure you understand what documents are being requested and the deadline for submitting them.
  1. Collect the necessary documents: Gather all the required documents to prove your income. These may include tax returns, pay stubs, bank statements, or other documents showing your income.
  1. Ensure the documents are accurate: Double-check your documents to make sure they are accurate and up-to-date. Any discrepancies or errors could delay your enrollment or even result in a denial of coverage.
  1. Submit the documents: Submit the documents as instructed by Covered California. You can usually submit them online, by mail, or by fax. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully and submit the documents before the deadline.
  1. Follow up: After submitting your income proof, follow up with Covered California to ensure they have received your documents and that your enrollment is on track. 

How will Covered California Verify my Income?

Covered California will verify the income you provided on your application by comparing it with the information the IRS has on file. This process is “income verification.” Covered California will electronically request information from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) database and other databases to check if the income you reported matches what they have on record. Please note that the IRS will not disclose your tax details to Covered California. They will only inform Covered California if your reported income matches or does not match the information they have on file for you.
