For tax year 2023, a 1095-B form will not be issued to individuals unless a copy is requested. 

When the ACA was implemented in 2014, there were individual shared responsibility payments that taxpayers were liable for if they were not covered by minimum essential health coverage. 

The 1095-B tax form was used to report certain information to the IRS and to taxpayers about their minimum essential coverage for the year. Starting with tax year 2019, these penalties or responsibility payments are no longer being imposed, which means the 1095-B tax form is not essential in order for persons to correctly complete their tax returns. For this reason, a 1095-B tax form for tax year 2023 will not be issued to individuals by the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services unless a copy is specifically requested.

Responsible individuals may receive a copy of their 1095-B tax form upon request. A copy of the form can be requested by contacting Member Services in writing at:

Iowa Medicaid Member Services
PO Box 36510
Des Moines, IA 50315

Or by phone or email:

Please include the following information in your request:

  • Name
  • Mailing address
  • Date of Birth

Once you have requested a copy of your 1095-B tax form, one will be provided within 30 days of the request at the mailing address that is provided by you in the request.
