Connect for Health Colorado Customers
Connect for Health Colorado has posted important tax filing information for consumers who purchased a plan through the Marketplace. Marketplace customers will receive a 1095-A form in the mail. This form is needed for them to file their federal income tax return. All questions regarding the 1095-A form should be directed to the Connect for Health Colorado Customer Service Center. You’ll find more information on the Connect for Health Colorado website.
Medicaid or CHP+ Clients Members
Medicaid and Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+) members will not receive 1095-A forms. The 1095-A form is only for Coloradans who purchased a plan through Connect for Health Colorado. If you were covered for all of 2014 by Medicaid or CHP+, you will simply have to check a box on your tax form saying you were covered. If you were not covered for all of 2014 by Medicaid or CHP+, you may want to apply for an exemption through the federal government using the IRS 8965 tax form. The Colorado Department of Health Colorado Policy & Financing is not responsible for granting exemptions — requesting an exemption must be done through the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). For more information go to IRS.gov/ACA.
Open enrollment for 2015 has closed. If you started the process of applying by the February 15th deadline, Connect for Health Colorado will continue working with you to finish your enrollment for March 1 coverage.
Coloradans with special circumstances can still buy 2015 health insurance.
- Did you just move to Colorado?
- Did you have a baby?
- Did you lose health coverage from an employer or Medicaid?
- Did you turn 26 and are no longer on your parents’ plan?
- Did you get married or divorced?
These and other “qualifying life events” mean you can still enroll and apply for financial assistance.
