Back It’s Not Too Late for Health Care! File Your Taxes with Jackson Hewitt for Help!04.01.14 Customers still have time to get help with health care coverage options when they file their taxes with Jackson Hewitt. Qualified customers may still apply for tax credits to help pay their premiums or for Medicaid/CHIP, which is generally free or low-cost.A new application extension is now available in most states.* If you had problems signing up for coverage that made you miss the March 31 deadline, you may still qualify for a tax credit. Also, if you had a life event in the last 60 days – things like getting married/divorced, having a baby, or moving to a different zip code – you may also be able to apply for a tax credit. Remember, you can sign up for Medicaid/CHIP at any time.*California, Connecticut, and Washington State not included.
