The e-File database indicates that Form 8962 or a binary attachment with description containing "ACA Explanation" must be present with the return.

When e-filing federal return, I keep getting "The e-File database indicates that Form 8962 or a binary attachment with description containing "ACA Explanation" must be present in the return.  I already added the information on form 1095-A and it shows form 8962 when I preview it, but it keeps rejecting.  Why does it keep rejected, it the forms are there?  Please help.
