What is Form 1095-A?
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, requires most U.S. residents to have health insurance. It also offers a tax break, the Premium Tax Credit commonly known as APTC to help offset the costs of health coverage. You should receive a copy of Form 1095-A if you bought your plan from a state exchange. If you bought your plan direct from a carrier, you’ll receive a Form 1095-B. These forms provide information needed to claim the tax credit on your tax return.
Form 1095-A Health Insurance Marketplace Statement
If enrolled in a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace in 2015 you will receive a Form 1095-A, Health Insurance Marketplace Statement from the Marketplace, not the IRS.
The Form 1095-A will tell you the dates of coverage, and the total amount of monthly premiums for your insurance plan.
If you set-up a HealthCare.gov account, Covered CA or Washington Healthplanfinder account, you can get a copy of the Form 1095-A, Health Insurance Marketplace Statement online.
*** you may receive multiple 1095-A forms for each policy ID
