How to Get Your Advanced Premium Tax Credit
The new Advanced Premium Tax Credit helps qualifying individuals and families offset the cost of health insurance premiums. Certain individuals and families may also qualify for extra help with deductibles and copayments. If you can answer NO to all of the following questions, then your family may qualify for a tax credit:
- Does your employer offer health insurance?
- Do you receive Medicare or Do you qualify for Medicaid?
- Does the tax credit calculator/estimator (linked below) indicate a monthly tax credit for your family?
