Enrollees with incomes under 100% FPL are not charged a copay.

If you are required to make copayments under your plan, there is a limit to how much you have to pay per quarter (every three months).

Quarter 1
January 1 - March 31
Quarter 2
April 1 - June 30
Quarter 3
July 1 - September 30
Quarter 4
October 1 - December 31

This means that the most you are required to pay for copayments during any quarter of the calendar year is $147.

Once you pay $147 in copayments during that quarter, you don't have to pay any more copayments for the rest of the quarter. However, at the beginning of the next quarter, you will have to start paying copayments again until you pay a total of $147 out of pocket.
