It’s important for people to know that If anyone in their household
enrolled in a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace
in 2014, they’ll get a new Form 1095-A — Health Insurance Marketplace
The form will be mailed in early February for them to use to file
their 2014 federal income tax return. They won’t get this form
if no one in the household is enrolled in a Marketplace Qualified
Health Plan.  
If a person had health coverage from another source, like a job,
Medicare, Medicaid, or an insurance plan they bought outside the
Marketplace they’ll report this by checking a box on their federal
income tax form.

Tax tools to help you file your 2014 taxes: Tools will be available

final 2014 premium tax credit, using Form 8962).
