How health coverage affects your 2014 federal income tax return?

Your 2014 health coverage may affect your income taxes.


  • You’ll provide additional information when you file your 2014 federal income tax return

  • You may have to complete one or two new tax forms

  • You may have to use one or two tax tools to find 2014 Bronze or Silver premiums to complete your tax return

  • If you didn’t have 2014 health coverage, you may have to get a health coverage exemption or pay a fee with your tax return.


If anyone in your household enrolled in a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace in 2014:


  • You should’ve received a Form 1095-A — Health Insurance Marketplace Statement to help file your 2014 federal income tax return.

  • Learn more about Form 1095-A and your taxes, including what to do if you didn’t get your 1095-A or it had errors.


If you had health coverage from another source, like a job, Medicare, Medicaid, or a plan you bought outside the Marketplace:


  • You’ll report this simply by checking a box on your 2014 federal income tax form

  • You won’t have to fill out any additional tax forms

  • You shouldn’t have received a Form 1095-A


If you didn’t have health coverage for 3 months or more in 2014, one of these will apply to you:


  • You’ll qualify for a health coverage exemption.

  • You’ll pay a fee when you file your 2014 federal income tax return.


Find your Form 1095-A

  • Log in to Marketplace account

  • Select your 2014 application (be sure you’re not choosing your 2015 coverage application)

  • Select “Tax forms” from the menu on the left

  • View or download each Form 1095-A

  • All 1095-As are also available with your Marketplace messages

Bridge the gaps in health insurance coverage!

When a life change leaves you without health insurance, you need coverage to get you through the transition period. With a short-term health insurance plan from Golden Rule Insurance Company, a UnitedHealthcare company, you can select the length of time (1 to 11 months in many states) and choose from a range of available deductible amounts and payment options. And when your needs change, you have the flexibility to drop your coverage at any time without a penalty.
