Do I need to enter both my 1095-B and 1095-A forms?

I had employer insurance for 10 months, had a 1 month break, then 1 month on Obama Care. Because of this I received both 1095 A and B. I was able to add A, but not cannot figure out how to add 1095-B.

No, not all 1095 tax forms get reported.

  • Only the 1095-A gets entered into TurboTax in the Health Insurance section. 
  • If you have a 1095-B, a form titled Health Coverage, the IRS does NOT need any details from this form. You can keep any 1095-B forms you get from your health insurance company or the government agency that sponsors your plan for your records.
  • If you have a 1095-C, a form titled Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage the IRS does NOT need any details from this form. You can keep any 1095-C forms you get from your employer for your records.

See the following TurboTax video for more info.

How do I complete this process without being penalized for being uninsured for the majority of the year, if I cannot enter 1095b?

The IRS already has 1095-B and 1095-C information so there is nothing to enter (i.e., they will match up your identifying information for confirmation of insurance) other than to check the box on the tax form that you had insurance. Only 1095-A recipients need to fill out a Form 8962 to file with their return. In ALL cases, you keep the 1095 form(s) with your tax records. TurboTax handles all of reporting so just follow the question / answer process and you'll be fine.

The Form 1095-B is not and cannot be entered on a tax return.

Send your 1095B with your return. You don’t need to enter the details into your return. Just mail a copy with your return.  I say this because we did not provide a copy last year (2019 filing) and the IRS delayed my refund until we finally received notice that I needed to amend my return and mail it to the IRS. Once they received it, they adjusted my refund amount (they doubled it) and a few weeks later they deposited it into my account.  

The law still requires a Form 1095-B to be filed with the IRS, but taxpayers do not generally need this Form in order to prepare their individual returns for 2019.

NO.  The tax code does NOT require a Form 1095-B to be reported on a tax return.

See this TurboTax support FAQ for the Form 1095-B - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/credits-and-deductions/help/do-i-need-to-enter-a-1095-b/01/26673
