Native Americans and the ACA

The information for Native American Services is spread pretty out. (The ACA is probably one of the worst marketed programs ever). Here are the basics for individuals that have their tribal affiliation. 1. At 300% or less of poverty level (400% in Alaska) you get the no cost sharing (the zero co-pays). This year that is $35,640 per year with a modified adjusted gross income. Which is fancy talk for you can write off some income and qualify for better rates. 2. You can enroll throughout the year. 3. You can apply for an exception for the tax penalty. 4. Improvements to existing Indian Health Services. I always recommend using a no-cost broker. (Ask up front if they charge because some are needing to charge). We don't charge fees, are licensed by the state, trained how plans work, and can help with situations like this. If you have any questions then let me know I am always glad to help out.

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 Healthcare.com (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 HealthCare.gov can find a basic "bronze" plan at no cost to them, factoring in subsidies. Bronze plans are skimpy, but experts sa…

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…
