The this past year, April was the only month I made over the income threshold, but the rest of the months are significantly lower by several hundred dollars. My last tax return divided by 12 months is a few hundred dollars less per month than the Ohio requirement. Do they go by my tax return, or recent income? The problem is that I was in the hospital in March, which my income was lower than, and they said if approved, they retroactively pay back claims up to 90 days. My average income for the last 4 months after business expenses is only about 900 because I'm still looking for full time work that pays more than being an UBER driver. Would they deny the application just because one month happened to be higher than the threshold?
