We were supposed to receive the 1095A form in early Feb. Its 2/14/15 and still no form. The ACA web help says they will call back— no call back. Then it would take several days: Then told it would be 30 days. Its not on my account online. Please help!!!!!! Very, very, very frustrating when you can’t even file my taxes. So where is my 1095A information?


Answer

Most 1095A forms were filed by the Marketplace by Jan 31st, 2015. However in some cases forms won't be available until the end of February.

After the Marketplace has filed your 1095A form you'll be able to view it online and it will be sent in the mail. It's true that those who got cost assistance will have to hold off on filing their Premium Tax Credit Form 8962 until they have their 1095A.

As soon as open enrollment ends Feb 15th, it should be much easier to get through to the Marketplace to sort this issue out.

Often it's not a sign that something is wrong with your form, it's simply the fact that the forms are apparently taking a little longer to file then was hopped. The hard-deadline for filing is the end of Feb. The hard-deadline for taxes is April 15th. So you still have time to wait for your 1095a form.

UPDATE 2/21/15: An estimated 800,000 people received the wrong 1095a form. If you got a 1095a form with incorrect data, or need to do any calculations for related tax forms, you can use the Second Lowest Cost Silver Plan tax tool to calculate subsidy amounts correctly. That being said, those who got incorrect forms are being asked to wait to file until the correct form is filed. If you already filed your form, don't worry too much. Subsidy amounts didn't change much between 2014 and 2015, so in most cases the calculations shouldn't be off by much.

If you are running out of time to file, see our page on how to file without a 1095-A.

I, in July, am still waiting for my 1095 form. I was forced to get Obamacare because I can’t afford insurance, but now, I can’t afford Obamacare and am getting behind in other bills waiting for my refund; so what’s next? Am I to be sent to jail? The gamble of getting sick or needing another hip surgery would have been worth it because I would not be sinking in this financial pit. I have called 3 times. Last time I was told it would be seven weeks from when I applied and it has been well over that. I was told about 2 weeks ago it was either about to be in the mail or was already in the mail..NO, nothing…meanwhile I am scanning my car, parking lots, etc. for quarters or even pennies to get enough gas to get to work. And I get a little more than some people because I am a manager. I don’t spend excessively, I drive a beat up old car and am very frugal, trying to even save enough to get on a budget but can’t….this is too frustrating for words…I hope to get a real answer and not shoved around…

Aside from contacting both the Marketplace and IRS to follow up, there isn’t much to do other than wait (although some people have also tried self-filing a 1095-A). On one hand it makes sense that not everyone of the 10 million plus 1095-A forms went smoothly, this is actually common in the first year of new tax credit programs. IRS is human, HealthCare.Gov is human, CMS, HHS, etc. On another more practical hand, it really sucks to be that person who is waiting for their refund. Health insurance / healthcare is one of the biggest expenses a normal family will deal with and a person’s refund can be substantial, to have both of those things in flux could easily be the difference between being able to afford life in the here-and-now or not. On the plus this shouldn’t be affecting your ability to get tax credits now for 2015. We would not suggest forgoing tax credits based on a bad experince from a previous year.

I just got a letter from the IRS stating that I had received a FORM 1095 -A last year and should have completed FORM 8962 with my 2014 tax return. I am confused because I have never registered with Covered California. I receive health care through my job with SF unified school district. How can I get to the bottom of this.

ObamaCareFacts.com on

Good question. I’d call the IRS. 8962 is for Marketplace tax credits, you didn’t get any, so you don’t need to file it. You also don’t need to file a 1095-a those are automatically filed on your behalf.

When will we get our 2015 1095a ?

ObamaCareFacts.com on

Last year it was the end of January. It would make sense that the forms would be sent out as open enrollment ends so there is only one focus at once. I will aim to update the site when I get a confirmed answer.

I’ve been trying to retrieve my 1095A form online and by mail for over an month from Healthcare.gov and all I’ve been told was that my issue has been escalated. As of today, it still hasn’t been mailed out. I’ve also spoken with Supervisor Kia P. which was useless. I’m very frustrated because this is causing a big inconvenience.

I just edited out the last name here, the marketplace workers are doing their best, but the frustration is well understood.
