Here are a few examples of how Advanced Premium Tax Credits (subsidies) work ...   Example 1: Single individual, 45040 zip code, 60 years old, self-employed, gross income is $60,000 but after write offs and expenses, Adjusted Gross Income (line 37 of tax return) was $32,000.

So you plan and price is locked until the end of next year. You can avoid all of the mess with Obamacare until 2015 and probably save some money without sacrificing coverage!   This option makes sense if you don't qualify for a subsidy and you are healthy.   Get a quote now, email me, or call me at...
