If anyone in your household enrolls in a Marketplace plan, you'll get Form 1095-A, Health Insurance Marketplace Statement by mid-February of the following year. It comes from the Marketplace, not the IRS. When you file your federal income taxes, you'll use it to complete questions about your Marketplace health coverage and to reconcile your premium tax credit.
Your 1095-A contains information about Marketplace plans any member of your household had in 2016, including:
Even if you don’t usually file a tax return, you'll need to if you or another household member had a Marketplace plan and wants to claim the premium tax credit, or if you got advance payments of the premium tax credit. When you file, you'll use the information on Form 1095-A to complete Form 8962, Premium Tax Credit (PDF).
It's sent to you in the mail by early February. It's also available online with each year's application in your Marketplace account.
IMPORTANT: Can't find your Form 1095-A?
Each year's Marketplace application has its own "Tax forms" page. If you're looking for a 1095-A for a past year, open your Marketplace application for that year and check the "Tax forms" page.
The 1095-A is sent to households where someone qualified for advance payments of the premium tax credit to help pay premiums for the plan they bought through the Marketplace. If this doesn’t apply to anyone in your household, you won't get a 1095-A.End highlighted text

These forms don’t come from the Marketplace. Health insurance providers send Form 1095-B to people they cover, with information about who was covered and when. Check with your health insurance provider if you need Form 1095-B. Certain employers send Form 1095-C with information about coverage they offered or provided to employees. If you need this form, check with your employer.
