1095-B FAQ

This tax season, Medical Assistance members (including Foster Care) will receive Form 1095-B Members who receive their Medical Assistance through a CMO (Amerigroup, Peachstate, Wellcare, or CareSource) will also receive this form from Georgia Medical Assistance. This form is required by the IRS as a result of the Affordable Care Act.

The 1095-B is an information form. Just like a W-2 form, it contains information that is required for completing your taxes. Also, like a W-2 form, the 1095-B form will be provided to the IRS to show the months you had Medical Assistance.

In order to avoid possible delays with filing your taxes or with receiving your refund, it is extremely important for each member to make sure that DFCS has the latest address on file. The forms will be sent to your address on file as of December 15, 2020. If the information is not correct, you may be unable to file your taxes on time, which could delay your tax refund if one is due.
