What is Form 1095-A?
If you or members of your family enrolled in a private health plan through MNsure, you will receive IRS Form 1095-A (Health Insurance Marketplace Statement).
This form provides information that you will need to report proof of your health insurance coverage, any advanced premium tax credits (APTC) you may have received, or to claim the premium tax credit on your annual tax return.
MNsure mails IRS Form 1095-A to you and provides a copy of this information to the IRS.
If you or someone in your household received APTC, you are required to file a federal income tax return for the year in which you received APTC. If you do not file a federal tax return, you will not be eligible for APTC and cost-sharing reductions in the future.
The information on Form 1095-A is used to complete IRS Form 8962 (Premium Tax Credit). This form must be filed if APTC payments were applied to your insurance premiums or if you want to claim the premium tax credit on your annual tax return.
You will get one Form 1095-A for each private health plan in which you or members of your household were enrolled during the tax year.
You may receive multiple Form 1095-As if you:
- Changed plans in the middle of the year.
- Added or removed members from a plan during the year.
- Have members of your household in enrolled in different plans.
