In case, you or anyone in your family has decided to get insurance then you need to fill out Form 1095-A. You must get them to initiate the complete procedure of getting insurance. Form 1095-A is available at your Healthcare.gov account for all users.
What is Form 1095-A comprised of
Your 1095-A provided information about Marketplace plans anyone in your family has had including:
- Any paid Premiums
- Utilized Premium Tax Credits
- Your SLCSP (Second-lowest-cost silver plan)
You’ll use information from your 1095-A to fill out Form 8962, Premium Tax credit. This is often how you’ll “reconcile” — determine if there’s any difference between the premium tax credit you used and therefore the amount you qualify for and if you didn’t take any advance payments for your premium tax credit despite having Marketplace coverage.
Important Facts to Remember:
- Form 1095-A shall provide information about your family’s marketplace plans in 2020.
- It is important to keep this Form readily available and store it where you keep your tax information and other details.
- Keep in mind that the IRS does not provide Form 1095-A, you can get it from the marketplace.

Once you’ve got an accurate 1095-A and your SLCSP premium, you’re able to fill out Form 8962 easily and reconcile your premium tax credit.
