The Mass Health Connector will send Form 1095-A to members by the end of January. Those insured through the Health Connector should wait to get a Form 1095-A before filing their federal tax return.

If you had a 2018 ConnectorCare plan, or a monthly tax credit to lower your premiums in 2018, you must file a federal income tax return.Filing is a requirement even if you normally don’t file a federal tax return because you have no income or your income is low.

What is Form 1095-A?

Form 1095-A provides the following information for Health Connector members

  • Months covered by the Health Connector
  • How much tax credit was applied to monthly premiums in 2018
