Individuals Who Opted to Not Take Advance Premium Tax Credit and Form 1095-A (Health Insurance Marketplace Statement)

February 10, 2015


If an individual opted to not receive an advance premium tax credit (subsidy) when they obtained their health insurance through the Federal Marketplace, the Form 1095-A (Health Insurance Marketplace Statement) that they receive will have zeros in Part III, column B (Monthly Premium Amount of Second Lowest Cost Silver Plan – SLCSP) for the months that they had health insurance in 2014.

In order for these individuals to be able to calculate a premium tax credit on Form 8962 (Premium Tax Credit), they must enter an amount greater than zero for the Second Lowest Cost Silver Plan in Part II, column B. To determine what this amount should be, the individual can use the Find 2014 Silver Plan Premium look up tool on the healthcare.gov website.

Here is the information an individual will need to determine the Second Lowest Cost Silver Plan amount using the tool:

  • Zip Code and County where they lived each month in 2014
  • Age of each family member covered
  • Months each family member was covered and was not eligible for other coverage outside the marketplace.

If the individual obtained their insurance through one of the 15 State Marketplaces and did not receive a subsidy, then Form 1095-A, Part III, column B may contain zeros for the months that they had health insurance during 2014. If this is the case, they will need to go to the applicable State Marketplace website to determine what the Second Lowest Cost Silver Plan amount should be as follows:
