Advantages of Enrolling through the Marketplace.
Even if you don't qualify for a tax credit, you can apply through the Federal Marketplace at http://www.healthcare.gov . Here are 4 advantages:
1. EASE OF APPLICATION:
The process is paperless, and each year you can easily select a new plan. It's easy to also put different family members on different company plans or policies. Call me at 503-650-4235 and we can do the Marketplace application together via screen-share/phone or in person. If you decide to do the healthcare.gov application on your own, please consult with me first as it is easy to make a costly error.
2. TAX CREDITS:
The Marketplace is the only way to claim the tax credits. Even if you don't qualify when you apply, you may later on in the year if your health or income changes. I've had a few clients make costly mistakes when their income dropped mid-year.
3. IF YOU SHOULD APPLY OR RENEW ON YOUR OWN:
The Marketplace application asks "Is a Professional helping you complete this application?" Here I appreciate you saying yes, then adding my agent name, Dan Neils, and NPN number, 757811. This allows me to be compensated at no cost to you, and appoints as your broker should you need help during the year.
4. I'M HERE TO HELP:
Should you like my help enrolling or completing the annual enrollment I am at your service. Just call me at 503-650-4325 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a phone time or in person. I can complete an application in 1/6 the time you can do so alone, and I can help you avoid common mistakes that are easy to make in an unfamiliar application.
