What is IRS 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). MNsure mails IRS Form 1095-A to you and provides a copy of this information to the IRS. You will not receive Form 1095-A if you were enrolled in a catastrophic health plan or a dental-only plan.

The 1095-A form provides information that you will need to report any advanced premium tax credit (APTC) you may have received during the tax year, or to claim the premium tax credit on your annual tax return. The information on Form 1095-A is used to complete IRS Form 8962 (Premium Tax Credit) with your federal tax return. Form 8962 is used to compare how much tax credit you used in the last tax year to what you qualify for.

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 forms 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 enrolled in different plans.

IRS Forms 1095-B and -C

You may receive forms to help report health coverage information that will not come from MNsure.

  • If you got your health insurance through an employer, you may receive IRS Form 1095-B or Form 1095-C. If you have questions about either form contact your employer's human resources representative.
  • If anyone in your household got their health coverage through MinnesotaCare or Medical Assistance, expect to get IRS Form 1095-B. The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) sends Form 1095-B. For information about this form, visit the DHS website.
  • If some members of your household enrolled in a private health plan and other members enrolled in Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare, you will receive Form 1095-A for only those family members enrolled in a private health plan.
