Health Connector Member Tax Filing Responsibilities

February 7, 2024

Each January, those enrolled in Health Connector health plans during the previous calendar year receive a 1095-A tax form. Health Connector members use these forms when they prepare their federal tax returns. All Health Connector members also receive a form 1099-HC from their health plan, which they should use when preparing state tax returns
Health Connector members who received Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTCs) to help reduce the cost of their coverage (including those enrolled in ConnectorCare plans) are required to file taxes and reconcile APTCs received to remain eligible for tax credits in the future.
Members who did not receive APTCs in 2023 can use the information on their 1095-A to find out if they qualify to receive premium tax credits when they file their federal income tax returns. 

  • To learn more about the tax filing process, APTCs and how they relate to maintaining Health Connector health coverage, review information from the Health Connector’s website
  •  Please see the updated letters to Tax Preparers for ConnectorCare members (available in English and Spanish) and information about free tax assistance.
