H&R Block announced that select Phoenix offices will offer “helpth”—help getting health insurance—at no additional cost for Arizonans seeking to understand, select and enroll in plans available on the newly opened Arizona Health Insurance Marketplace.
Helpth is now available for the estimated 20 percent of Arizonans who are uninsured or under-insured, including families with small children, the self-insured, young working adults and people with pre-existing conditions who have previously been unable to qualify.
Locations offering this free service include: 5130 N. 19th Ave.; 1655 E. Indian School Rd.; 3295 E. McDowell Road, and 530 E. McDowell Road.
H&R Block’s fully licensed and certified health care advisors will help consumers understand the numerous options available while also avoiding the tax penalties associated with not enrolling. Additionally, many Arizonans will qualify for the Advance Tax Credit that will help lower the cost of insurance premiums, and H&R Block can help individuals determine their eligibility.
To meet with an H&R Block health care advisor, call 800-HRBLOCK (800-472-5625) or visit the website www.helpth.com to schedule an appointment. Appointments can be made with H&R Block health care advisors on or before Dec. 15 for coverage to be effective Jan. 1, 2014. Individuals seeking appointments do not need to be current or past H&R Block clients, and do not need to provide tax information.
