Correction - Information of Interest: Division of Family Resources to Send 1095 B to Indiana Medicaid Recipients
Earlier this month, we shared information from the Division of Family Resources regarding new requirements regarding information that Medicaid recipients need to submit with their taxes to indicate they had health care throughout the year. In that message, we incorrectly included DFR Director Adrienne Shields contact information as a resource for more information. The corrected notice is included below. Please share this with those you serve and their families, so they are directed to the appropriate resource information. We apologize for the confusion.
The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration has shared information that will be mailed out by the Division of Family Resources (DFR) to all Medicaid recipients as it relates to the new requirement regarding information they need to submit with their taxes indicating that they had health care throughout the year.
The federal government now requires all individuals to have health insurance and indicate coverage status when 2015 taxes are filed. FSSA will begin mailing out the federal form (1095 B) to all Indiana Medicaid Recipients starting mid-January. This form provides the verification of health coverage for 2015 that can be used to report on the tax return.
The Indiana website to request a replacement 1095 B will be accessible after January 18, 2016. To request a replacement form after January 18, click here.
