Know your ABCs : Forms 1095A, 1095B, & 1095C
Employers and American taxpayers need to understand the ABC’s of the Affordable Care Act coverage reporting forms.
Click on any of the form names below to view the form. The link contains the “Instructions to Recipient” page, too.
Form 1095A: Anyone who purchased health insurance through the marketplace at healthcare.gov will receive this form. These taxpayers should wait until they receive the 1095A to file their income taxes.
Form 1095B: Anyone who purchased health insurance directly from an insurer, or if they received coverage through their small business employer (employer is not subject to the employer mandate), is entitled to a copy of this form.
Form 1095C: Anyone who was offered or received health coverage from a large business (subject to the employer mandate) will receive this form from their employer.
None of these forms should be attached to an individual’s tax returns, but should be kept with important tax records.
