Spousal plan calculator
If you answered YES to ALL of the questions on the Premium Surcharge Help Sheet (pdf) or the online spousal plan questionnaire (2018) or (2019), answer the questions in the Spousal Plan Calculator (interactive tool) or (pdf) to determine if you must pay the surcharge.

Use the Summary of Benefits and Coverage from your spouse's or state-registered domestic partner's employer-sponsored medical plan(s) to answer the Spousal Plan Calculator questions. The plan(s) must:
- Serve your spouse's or state-registered domestic partner's county of residence, and
- Cost less than $106.41 (2018) or $111.16 for the employee's share of the monthly premium.
Complete the calculator for each medical plan that meets the criteria above, one plan at a time. Then click Calculate. If you are entering more than one plan, and at lease one results in "You will have to pay the surcharge," then you will have to pay the surcharge.
