    Starting in 2016 for the 2015 tax year, the IRS is requiring that most tax filers fill out information on their tax return regarding health insurance coverage. Form 1095 proof will help you to fill out the information.

    This requirement is part of the Affordable Care Act. Most people who did not have health insurance last year will receive a tax penalty. Form 1095 does not apply to standalone dental or vision coverage.

    You can also find more details about Form 1095 on IRS.gov, or visit our Healthsource blog post on Form 1095.
