If you had coverage through Access Health CT last year, you will receive a new tax form in the mail this year.
Form 1095-A will document coverage and subsidies (if you receive any) for all those who purchased health care through the state exchange. This is important because you will be penalized if you cannot prove to the IRS that you had health insurance in 2014.
The IRS explains more here. Here’s a sample 1095-A form, so you know what you’ll be looking for.
It is important for Connecticut residents to note that Access Health CT announced that these forms are delayed for 3,600 residents, as reported by the CT Mirror.
