Why do I need Form 1095-B?

Under the Affordable Care Act, most people are required to have health coverage that meets certain minimum standards, or else they may pay a penalty for being uninsured. The Form 1095-B is proof that you meet this requirement.

For the 2016 tax year, you will check a box on your tax return, if you file taxes, to indicate you had health coverage.
