I qualified for Marketplace Insurance for only seven months last year (Jan through July 2014) because I became eligible for Medicare in August.
My tax return has already been completed. Today, I received an automated phone call that I will be receiving a 1095A Form in the mail within a few days that should be attached to my tax form..
Insofar that I was only eligible for 7 months, and will not be eligible for future Marketplace coverage, do I need to file an amended return to include the 1095-A form?
(I was not due a tax refund for 2014, if that makes any difference)
If you got cost assistance for even one month you need to file 8962 using a 1095-A. This is true even if you no longer need Tax Credits. The 8962 form reconciles advanced tax credit payments. That can mean claiming more credits, that can mean owing more up to the repayment limit. If you didn't file 8962 at all, then yes you should file an amended return. If however, you filed 8962 using an incorrect 1095-A sent in error (you were sent a corrected one later on) you don't need to amend.
