Managers of the HealthCare.gov exchange enrollment and administration system say its exchange plan users should already have their Form 1095-A coverage notices.
HealthCare.gov put all of the 1095-As in the account holders’ online accounts by Feb. 1, and it mailed copies of all of the forms via the U.S. Postal Service by Feb. 1, officials at the Centers for Medicare & Services (CMS) say in a slidedeck posted on Regtap, a semiprivate CMS website.
Creators put a date of Feb. 1, 2016, on the slidedeck. The slidedeck was posted on Regtap Friday.
CMS is the arm of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that runs HealthCare.gov.
Form 1095-A is the form a Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) public exchange is supposed to use to show that a consumer had exchange plan coverage, what the full price of the coverage was, and how the exchange applied any PPACA advanced premium tax credit (APTC) subsidy payments to the premium bills.
For the 2014 coverage year and the 2015 tax filing year, PPACA exchanges sent many consumers inaccurate 1095-A forms.
This year, CMS officials say, “Many consumers are calling in requesting a correction to their premium amount when the amount listed on their form is correct.”
