Avenue H

 

Avenue H is Utah’s small business health insurance solution. We help small businesses with 1-50 employees control costs while offering expanded coverage to those employees. Our approach to developing this portal is unique in that it builds on existing technology instead of starting from scratch. This allows the state to incorporate and build on private solutions. Utah’s approach is also designed to support the existing roles of entities in the health system, including insurers, brokers, and health care providers.

Tax Credit Calculator:

Healthcare.gov has created a new calculator to help small businesses determine the tax credit they could be eligible for. You can access the calculator at https://www.healthcare.gov/shop-calculators-taxcredit/ . To be eligible for a tax credit, your company must:

  • Have fewer than 25 full-time equivalent employees
  • Pay an average wage of less than $50,000 (excluding owner’s wages)
  • Contribute at least half of the premium of an employee-only plan for each employee

You’ll want to have the following information handy so you can get an accurate estimate:

  • Tax status (exempt vs. non-exempt)
  • A list of all full-time and part-time employees
  • The hours worked per week by part-time employees (you’ll have the option to enter the hours worked by each part-time employee onto a worksheet that will calculate the total hours for all part-time employees)
  • Annual wages that will be paid to employees this year
  • Insurance premiums paid last year or this year (health and dental)
