The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently published a blog discussing reissued Forms 1095-A by the Treasury. In February, Forms 1095-A containing inaccurate information were sent to a small percentage of taxpayers (less than 1%) who signed up for insurance using the HealthCare.gov Marketplace last year.
To address the situation, the Department of the Treasury announced that it would offer relief to taxpayers who filed returns using these inaccurate forms: they will not need to file an amended return this year, though they can.
The blog provides advice for those who think they may be affected:
- Check your phone and email for messages from CMS
- Call 1-800-318-2596, the Marketplace Call Center
- Check your HealthCare.gov account for an updated Form 1095-A
