What is Form 1095-A?
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, requires most U.S. residents to have health insurance, but it also offers a tax break, the Premium Tax Credit commonly known as APTC to help offset the costs of health coverage. If you bought coverage through one of the health insurance marketplaces, you should receive a copy of Form 1095-A, which provides information needed to claim the tax credit on your 2015 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
More information is available for Marketplace members at the following website:
