The Affordable Care Act requires issuers of insurance and some employers to send Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to members. When filing taxes in 2016, most people will have to report to the federal government whether they, along with their tax dependents, had medical insurance coverage during the previous year. The law stipulates that beginning in tax year 2015, people who don't have at least a minimal level of coverage could have to pay a fine to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
