These forms verify your clients had minimum essential health coverage in 2018.

Under the Affordable Care Act, you are required to verify your health care coverage when you file your federal tax return. This form fulfills that requirement. Although you are not required to submit your 1095 form to the IRS when you file your taxes, we encourage your clients to keep it as part of your tax records. We recommend consulting a tax adviser. Please refer to the IRS website for more information.
