How do I get cheap healthcare?

Today is myth busting for the price of healthcare in Washington State. We run Suzie Health Solutions, a Full Service Enrollment Center in Wenatchee, WA. We are trained and answer questions all year round for our clients. It is like having your personal HR department that works for you. 

In a recent survey of Uninsured, 2 out of 3 didn't even try to get healthcare with 1 out of 3 thinking price was a problem. The majority probably qualified to get reduced cost or no out of pocket to them. I found it a little strange that people didn't know what their options were deciding to gamble with a solutions. I don't want my neighbors to not get their kids to the doctor because they didn't get healthcare during open enrollment. 

We make it easy to get help.

Open Enrollment is very short running November 1st through Dec 15th for Healthcare. Medicare Enrollments are October 15th through December 7th. Outside of that time frame, you need documented reasons. It is why we tell people to pre-enroll and clean up accounts from September until Enrollment starts. (You can get going now by setting an appointment now that even sends reminders!)

Who get's help with Healthcare? If you are single making less than $4,163 a month and were not offered healthcare from work then you probably can get extra help. Yes, if you look at your taxes and are single making less than $50,000 a year then you probably get a price break. The price breaks for a family are larger for example a family of four can usually get help at $103,000 a year. The average household in Central Washington qualifies for lowered cost on their healthcare by over $4000. 

We use the computer and training to get discounts.


You want to look at plans that start in 2020 because, in addition to 7 companies have requested to lower their rates. The Insurance Commissioner puts it as 'record-low average proposed rates'. We will have a New Company offering plans in Central Washington (sorry, I can't name names until November 1st). Yes, Chelan, Douglas and Grant Counties can be looking at more than 15 plans that start next year. With that many plans, get a second pair of eyes to review and can make suggestions. If you don't want local help that you have an office then use one of the other Open Enrollment Centers for the Healthplanfinder as they do not charge fees and have gone through extra background checks.

We run event's during open enrollment and set appointments at odd hours. Our big event is at the Wenatchee Community Center, November 2nd from 10:00 AM until 2:00 pm. If you want to enroll at this event then call ahead so that we can connect and review the account. While we work on weekends often support does not. There are only 29 working days of Open Enrollment. It is why we recommend preregistering and setting appointments now.

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…
