Don’t Forget to Check This Box on Your 2015 Tax Return

 

Starting this year, you will need to show proof that you had health insurance in 2015 when you file your taxes. It’s called Form 1095, and you may receive one or more versions of the form.

If you purchased health coverage through the government’s Health Insurance Marketplace, you should have received Form 1095-A from the Marketplace—not your health insurer—by Jan. 31, 2016. This form will include the information you need to calculate your insurance premium tax credit. You’ll use the information on Form 1095-A to fill the Florida Blue Form 8962. You will need to include Form 8962 with your tax return.

 If you purchased a health plan directly from a health insurance company like Florida Blue, or have coverage provided by an employer, you will receive either (or both) Form 1095-B or Form 1095-C from your health plan provider and/or employer.  Florida Blue members will receive their Form 1095-B in the mail by March 31. This form shows that you were enrolled in minimal essential coverage in 2015. You can use this form as a reference when you filling out your tax return, but you do not need to file the form with your tax return.
