Tax season is here! Are you all set to file? If you were enrolled in a private health plan through Maryland Health Connection any time this year, there are important steps you need to take when you file your federal taxes.
If you’re enrolled in a private health plan
Locate your Form 1095-A in your online account. We also mailed the forms on Jan. 31.
If your Form 1095-A Part III is empty or incomplete, if you applied to receive a tax credit through Maryland Health Connection and you believe your Form 1095-A Part III is incorrect, or if you had a change in your household during the plan year that you did not report to Maryland Health Connection, use this worksheet.
If you have Medicaid or MCHP (Maryland Children’s Health Program) coverage
View your Form 1095-B in your online account beginning in mid-February.
Make sure the information is correct.
Save it with your tax documents.
If you file taxes, you do not need to send this form to the IRS when filing your taxes.
Get covered when you file taxes!
For the third year, we’ve been working with the Comptroller of Maryland to make it easy for uninsured Marylanders to find out more about health coverage and enroll. The Maryland Easy Enrollment Health Insurance Program was created so Marylanders have access to quality and affordable health insurance.
Check a box on your tax return if you would like the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange, the state agency that runs Maryland Health Connection, to see if you are eligible for free or low-cost coverage.
