Explanation of tax forms
Form MA 1099-HC – Health New England sends the Massachusetts Health Care Coverage Form MA 1099-HC to all members. It is mainly used for filing your Massachusetts state tax return. This form is also mailed to Connecticut residents who work for a Massachusetts employer or receive their health care coverage through Health New England.
Federal 1095 forms identify what health care coverage you had and/or were offered in the previous tax year:
- Form 1095-A, Health Insurance Marketplace Statement – Individuals who purchased health care coverage through the Health Connector will receive this form. This form is sent by the Massachusetts Health Connector.
- Form 1095-B, Health Coverage – Health New England will send this form to all fully funded group members.
- Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage – Individuals who get their health insurance through their employer (employers with 50+ employees, and self-funded groups) will receive this form. This form is sent by the employer.
- Some individuals will receive both 1095-B and 1095-C forms—one from Health New England and one from their employer.
Individuals who have Medicare or Medicaid get their health care coverage forms directly from the government.
