Health Care Tax Credit Solution
Make sure your clients and prospects get the maximum amount of tax credits by leveraging the small business Health Care Tax Credit now. You may question if the tax credit is compelling enough to bring to your clients. Here are data and insights as to why the tax credit is meaningful and how you can take advantage of it.
Using our Tax Credit Estimation, we worked with brokers to analyze over 100 companies to determine their tax credit eligibility, and found:
- 75% qualified for the tax credit.
- Nearly 25% of those that qualified purchased coverage through Covered California for Small Business (also known as SHOP: Small Business Health Options Program) and received an average credit of $5,800.
- Over 70% had no prior coverage.
- 20% of those groups that did not qualify for the tax credit chose to purchase coverage anyway.
- A variety of business types qualified, including: preschools, auto shops, landscapers, home care, bakeries, doctor and dentist offices, and non-profits.
Tax credit insights and tips to enhance your selling efforts:
- Establish new sales opportunities – employers can afford to offer coverage for the first time.
- Increase your conversion and retention rates with a hard dollar value proposal.
- Create urgency – the tax credit is maximized by migrating to Covered California for Small Business early in the year.
Your small employer clients may be eligible for tax credits of up to 50% of the cost of employer-paid premiums with the Health Care Tax Credit*. Employers need to enroll in a Covered California for Small Business plan to qualify.
