Massachusetts Premium Assistance

I pay for retiree insurance from an ex-employer. My income is below the Federal Poverty Level and so I qualify for premium assistance from MA. This isn't the federal Premium Tax Credit because I don't buy my insurance through the market place as I qualify for MassHealth which is Medicaid in Massachusetts. I get the choice of to go on Medicaid or continue with my retiree insurance and have MA send me a check to pay a portion of the premium.

Can anyone tell me how the MA Premium Assistance is dealt with on the Federal Tax form...
