Health insurance and your taxes

The ACA has helped everyone have access to higher quality insurance and has expanded coverage to millions of people that didn’t have it before. Now is the time of the year to start thinking about how health insurance can affect your taxes. You will need to reflect your health insurance status for 2018 when you file your federal taxes this year. Not to worry! We’re here to help you understand what to expect so you’re prepared.

Select the scenario(s) that fits your health insurance situation in 2018:

I had insurance for all or part of 2018

If you had health insurance for all or part of 2018, you should have received a 1095 form to use when filing your 2018 taxes. There are three versions of this form, depending on where you got health insurance:

Form 1095-A

You should receive this form if you signed up for health insurance through a marketplace site like HealthSherpa.com or HealthCare.gov.

Form 1095-B
