The Affordable Care Act requires Americans to have health insurance. But how is that enforced? This year, taxpayers are finding out.
Depending on how they received coverage for the 2015 calendar year, taxpayers should receive one of three versions of the 1095 form. Form 1095-A is for those who purchase insurance on the state or federal marketplaces, such as healthcare.gov. Form 1095-B is for those who purchase coverage directly from insurance companies. The vast majority of American workers will receive form 1095-C, which is for those who are covered through their place of employment.

We want to showcase our unique benefits communication services.However, there may be some confusion, given that this is the first year employers, insurers or government programs are required to send these forms to taxpayers. This is especially true now that the IRS has pushed the deadline for sending out forms from Jan. 31 to March 31, although many have already been sent. Taxpayers may not expect to receive an important form so close to the April 15 filing deadline. Some may have already filed their tax returns without proving whether or not they had health insurance in all or part of 2015.
