Open Enrolllment for Healthcare 2016

We believe that healthcare should be affordable and usable. There are 136+ plans on the Washington Health Benefits Exchange and it can be a little confusing to who covers what, for how much. For 2014 we helped so many people in Eastern Washington that Matt McColm was named a Top Producer by the Washington Health Benefits Exchange.

Open Enrollment is just around the corner. It doesn’t matter if you are a new or a repeat customer as we take the time to explain how plans work so that our clients can make informed decisions. This is a tremendous time for Health Insurance because it allows customers to shop and select new plans that start in 2016. Some important things to consider:

1. Open Enrollment runs from November 1st to Jan 31st. This is when Health Insurance is the most Flexible.
2. There are Special Enrollments outside for a variety of reasons including moving careers to one that does not provide Health Insurance.
3. Households of 2 qualify for reduced prices for Health Insurance in 2016 when they make $63,720 or less a year.
4. The income is a modified adjusted gross that is reduced by certain good expenses such as Health Savings and Retirement accounts.
5. If you change careers it is easier on the budget if you plan the first quarter of the year because of how the reduction is calculated on the Federal Level.
It is easier to do everything in person but we also have tools that make things easy if we need to work remotely. The important thing about our agency is that we do not add a fee to our services. We provide professional help for Washington State.

2020 Healthcare Open Enrollment and Low cost plans.

Open Enrollment is November 1st through December 15th. Outside of that time frame, it requires a special documented reason.

We have been helping people enroll into plans on the Washington Healthplanfinder with out charging fees since the first Open Enrollment. Insurance is expensive and complicated. Not everyone has been trained by the Insurance Companies how their plans function nor went through the education and licensing for a Insurance Producer in Washington State.

Just as last year, there are a lot of little or no cost plans available. When I say a lot I mean that the people in charge of (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) put out a report stating 2/3 will be able to purchase a plan for $10 or less. An analysis Thursday from the consulting firm Avalere Health found that low-income residents in 96% of counties served by can find a basic "bronze" plan at no cost to them, factoring in subsidies.

1095 Forms, Do I need to file my taxes?

Hey, this is the 3rd year that we have been the Full Services Enrollment Center for the Washington Healthplanfinder. We don't charge a bunch of fees and you get access to extra services. Since it is tax season then you should know we help with 1095 Forms! Yes, we will print one out for you at our office if we are connected to your account.

Tax season is officially from January 27th to April 15, 2020. If you receive tax credits or Washington Apple Health then you need to file your taxes with the IRS. If it is not filed or filed incorrectly then the Healthcare Authority can revoke the tax credits. Yes, I have heard from more than one person that thought that they were saving money by not filing which created massive problems. The worst problems that I heard was they went the next year without healthcare!

If you are a tax professional then let me know and I will add you to this list. A person can be a paid tax return preparer as long as they have an IRS Preparer Tax Identification N…
