IF YOU HAD INSURANCE THROUGH THE MARKETPLACE....

YOU NEED YOUR 1095-A

If you enrolled in coverage through the Marketplace you will need the information on Form 1095-A to complete Form 8962 to reconcile any advance payments of the premium tax credit or claim the premium tax credit, and to file a complete and accurate tax return. If you need a copy of your Form 1095-A, you should go to HealthCare.gov or your state Marketplace website and log into your Marketplace account, or call your Marketplace call center. Although information from the Form 1095-C – information about an offer of employer provided coverage – can assist you in determining eligibility for the premium tax credit, it is not necessary to have Form 1095-C to file your return. See Publication 974 for additional information on claiming the premium tax credit.

You do not have to wait for either Form 1095-B or 1095-C from your coverage provider or employer to file your individual income tax return. You can use other forms of documentation, in lieu of the Form 1095 information returns to prepare your tax return. Other forms of documentation that would provide proof of your insurance coverage include.

  • insurance cards,
  • explanation of benefits
  • statements from your insurer,
  • W-2 or payroll statements reflecting health insurance deductions,
  • records of advance payments of the premium tax credit and
  • other statements indicating that you, or a member of your family, had health care coverage.
