Someone in my household passed away during the year. Why did the Department mail me a 1095-B form for him or her?


For tax purposes, federal law requires the Department to send a 1095-B form that includes information about the months during the year that you and/or others in your household were enrolled in Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid Program) or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+). This includes individuals who passed away during the year.

If you have questions about filing taxes for a deceased individual, go to IRS.treasury.gov/freetaxprep, or call 2-1-1 and ask to be connected with a tax assistance site near you.
