Sunday is the DEADLINE for individuals to get affordable health insurance and avoid a tax penalty of up to $695

 Small group health insurance with possible tax CREDITS  available all year

If you or your employees are not enrolled in a health insurance plan, you have less than 48 hours to get affordable health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace.  The deadline is January 31st at midnight. Federal law requires everyone to have health insurance unless they meet certain low income criteria.  The failure to have health insurance in 2016 will be a penalty of up to $695 per person that will be assessed at tax time next year.

8 out of 10 people who enroll in a health insurance plan through the Marketplace qualify for financial help. In fact, most people can find monthly premiums for $75 or less.

 

Visit HealthCare.gov today, submit your application and see if you qualify for financial help in 2016.
Assistance in choosing the right policy for you and your family is just a telephone call away.
