Why Do Government Agencies Use Gross Income Instead of Net to Determine Eligibility?
I lost my health insurance when I lost my car sales job. I applied for the extended Cobra Coverage offered under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 because I am eligible.
The H.R. person told me I would have to pay for March, April, and May premiums in order to enroll. I have no pre-existing bills and don't understand why I have to pay back premiums when I just applied in May 2009.
I went to New York State Family Health Plus, who told me I made too much money on unemployment to receive health insurance through them.
They based my income on gross income which I don't receive. I get the net income to live on. Gross less Fed taxes minus $100 in child support weekly. Why do Federal and State Agencies use Gross income instead of net income to determine eligibility?
