Using your new coverage - Getting covered is an important step that can give you greater peace of mind. But health insurance can be complicated, so it's important to know how to use your new coverage.
The Premium Tax Credit - If you purchased health insurance through the Marketplace and received financial assistance in the form of the Premium Tax Credit, you must claim the credit when you file your 2014 taxes (in 2015).
Your privacy is very important to us. You are always in control of how much private health information you disclose to our Counselors. They can help you use the Marketplace no matter what. We will never record or share your private information.
