Policy Update

National Women’s Law Center. The Academy co-signed a letter on March 24 with the National Women’s Law Center and forty-seven other organizations to the secretary of the Treasury, commissioner of IRS, and secretary of DHHS, urging them to issue regulations or guidance that lay out a process for married individuals to access affordable health insurance in circumstances that make it impossible or inadvisable for the individual to file a joint tax return.

In such cases, the letter recommended that the IRS should permit an allowance so that such individuals may be eligible for both the "advance premium tax credit" and the "premium tax credit." Subsequently, Treasury announced an enrollment extension to give married victims of domestic violence until May 31 to sign up for the plans and provides them with access to insurance subsidies even if they file separately from their spouse. Treasury has assured a proposed rule later this spring.
