MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA --(Marketwired - March 22, 2016) - Today eHealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: EHTH), which operates eHealth.com, the nation's first and largest private online health insurance exchange, released its top health insurance-related tax tips for the 2015 tax year.
Many consumers overlook credits and deductions that are designed to make medical care and health insurance more affordable. Consumers who had high medical expenditures in 2015, who were self-employed or owners of small businesses, or who cared for aging parents, should educate themselves on the opportunities to deduct a portion of their expenses from their federal income tax.
Health insurance consumers who received government subsidies (known as premium tax credits) to help pay their insurance premiums should also educate themselves on the possible tax consequences if they earned more than expected in 2015.
The tips below do not constitute personal tax advice and eHealth recommends that consumers explore these issues with a certified public accountant or tax professional when completing their federal income taxes.
