Will the stimulus checks being sent out in response to the Corona virus be counted as income in calculating Obamacare income limits for subsidies?

Veronica Provencio-Mendoza

Through a series of miscommunication with Medicare, my mother does not have Part B coverage, and her Social Security payments are still being taken for payment of premiums for coverage she no longer receives. Everything including help from her State senator in New Mexico, Tom Udall, has been tried. Efforts reaching out have been fruitless with Social Security non-responsive and now all offices are closed. She is at risk for serious illness, please advocate for open enrollment in all states so that people stuck in this same situation will not have to worry if hospitalization is needed for COVID or other health issues/complications from this outbreak.
Thank you!
