 The tax credit is designed to help lower the amount you pay for health insurance and is based on household, size and annual income. Generally the tax credit will be claimed when filing your annual tax return. This credit will be applied against taxes owed or will be refunded if no taxes are owed. If you qualify, you may choose to take the credit in the form of advanced premium payments to help pay monthly for health premiums. If you do qualify for a tax credit, it will be necessary to purchase your plan online through Colorado's exchange, Connect for Health Colorado.

Supplemental Products

Individual supplemental policies such as dental, life, and disability policies can offer important protection for individuals and their families. It is important the details of these policies are clearly defined, so you are not vulnerable to situations that may affect a policy payout. 

Disability insurance is a preventative policy designed to protect your home, your savings and your way of life. Many of us protect our families with life insurance in case of an untimely death. While this is an important benefit, statistically families are more likely to suffer financial devastation due to an injury or illness. The coverage amount is based on the policy holder's current monthly income and the amount determined to be adequate to cover monthly financial obligations. Individual policies offer more personalized coverage, can cover up to 70% of an individual's monthly income and an injury or illness need not be work related. Feel free to speak with an Health Shop agent to learn more.                                         

Term life policies usually provide the largest death protection at the lowest cost. Term insurance is generally a simple death benefit that covers the policy holder for a specific period of time, anywhere from one to 30 years. Permanent insurance policies can not only offer a death benefit but can build cash value over your lifetime. Some policies also offer a variety of investment options and have more flexibility to adjust benefit and premiums as your needs change. Health Shop highly recommends using an agent to shop a variety of carriers to ensure you have a full view of all options available to you.

"Over the 5 years that I have worked with Health Shop, I have found the staff extremely friendly and helpful. It's refreshing to speak to a live person and have emails returned right away! My agent contacts me well before my renewal and explains the best options for the company and the employees. I strongly recommended Health Shop to any business."

"A friend of mine referred me to Health Shop nearly 8 years ago. I was pleasantly surprised at how informative and friendly Ron was when explaining my options. He helped me with all the paperwork and I had a policy in place within 2 weeks. It is my pleasure to recommend Health Shop to anyone that is considering their services."
