Questions and Answers about Health Care Information Forms for Individuals (Forms 1095-A, 1095-B, and 1095-C

Beginning in 2015, the Affordable Care Act requires most U.S. taxpayers to declare they have minimum health coverage on their federal tax form. In December 2015, the VA will begin to mail IRS form 1095-B to all Veterans enrolled in the VA healthcare system in 2015. IRS Form 1095-B, will be used by Veterans to complete their 2015 income tax forms. Mailings are expected to be completed by the end of January 2016. The law also requires VA to provide this information to the IRS.
