Cost-Savings on Your Health Idaho

  • How do I apply for the Small Business Health Care tax credit?

    Small Business Health Care Tax Credit

    You can apply for the small business health care tax credits only if you enroll in insurance for your employees through the Small Business Health Option Program (SHOP) on Your Health Idaho.

    To receive a small business tax credit through SHOP, you must be determined eligible by completing a paper application. We encourage you to get help with a local agent or broker to make the process easier. Your eligibility must be determined before your insurance begins.

    Once completed, all employee enrollment information will be sent to the IRS, to ensure you are eligible for a small business tax credit.

  • Can I shop on Your Health Idaho if I am not eligible for a tax credit?

    Yes! Idahoans can shop on Your Health Idaho regardless of their eligibility for the tax credits.

    To shop on Your Health Idaho:

    • You must live in the U.S. and have a primary residence in Idaho.
    • You must be considered a resident of the U.S. and Idaho for tax purposes.
    • You must be a U.S. citizen or national. If you are a non-citizen you must be lawfully present in the U.S. for the entire time you plan to have health insurance.
    • You cannot be currently incarcerated.
  • If I have never filed income taxes before, can I still receive a tax credit?

    Yes, you can still qualify for a tax credit, even if you have never filed taxes before. However, if you apply for a tax credit in 2018 and you receive a tax credit, you must file a tax return for 2018.

    Failure to file taxes in 2018 would stop you from receiving future tax credits.
