Here to help you apply for tax credits to lower the costs of your health insurance…
Welcome. This website is here to help you contact a Navigator in Southwest Florida and locate events where you can enroll in the Health Insurance with the guidance of a certified Navigator.
What is a Health Insurance Navigator? Navigators are trained and certified to provide information on health insurance options available through the Health Insurance Marketplace. Our Navigators are not insurance agents and do not represent any insurance companies. Navigators help consumers, small businesses and their employees explore options and sign up for an insurance plan that meets their needs and budget by assisting them with eligibility and enrollment forms. Their services are free to consumers.
Why would I need a Health Insurance Navigator to help me sign up for health insurance? Navigators can help walk you through the steps of filling out the necessary forms, clarify confusing terms and compare various insurance plans. Navigators have no special agenda. They are trained to be bias free. Language translation and hearing impaired services can also be made available to you through the help of a Navigator.
What types of documents do I need when applying for tax credits to pay for my health insurance?
*Social Security Numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants)
*Employer and income information for every member of your household who needs coverage (for example, from pay stubs or W-2 forms—Wage and Tax Statements
*A completed Employer Coverage tool for every job-based plan you or someone in your household is eligible for. (You’ll need this form even for coverage you’re eligible for but don’t enroll in.)
