Your 1095-A Tax Statement
If you or your household enrolled in a Qualified Health Plan through Your Health Idaho at anytime during the year, you’ll receive Form 1095-A: Health Insurance Marketplace Statement. YHI sends this form to you and the IRS by January 31 via U.S. mail.
The 1095-A tax statement verifies your health insurance:
- Household members enrolled in your health plan
- How many months you had health insurance during the year
- The cost of your monthly premiums
- Amount of the Advance Premium Tax Credit (APTC) that you received
Use the information from your 1095-A tax statement to reconcile APTC on your tax return.
NOTE: Form 1095-A is not required for catastrophic or stand-alone dental plans.
