When it comes time for tax season, we understand it's essential to obtain all the facts and answers to your tax questions. Here are some quick resources and important FAQs regarding OneShare Health and Healthcare Exemption Form Information.
As with all HCSMs under 26 USC § 5000A(d)(2)(B)(ii), OneShare Health’s Members are exempt from the ACA individual mandate requirement of the U.S. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("ACA"). However, as of January 1, 2019, the ACA individual mandate is no longer in effect.
However, some states have implemented a state individual mandate. Members who reside in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, or Vermont are required to provide proof of Health Coverage Exemption (formerly utilizing the federal 8965 Health Coverage Exemption Tax Form) if they are not enrolled in insurance. Members can find information needed to complete Health Coverage Exemption Tax Form(s) via their OneSource Member Portal or logging into their OneShareBox dashboard under the section titled “Tax Information.”
Please consult your legal advisor regarding any relevant individual mandates under state law.
