    • IRS Form 1095-B
      The IRS 1095-B contains health coverage information for the covered individual and serves as proof of qualifying health insurance through Alaska Medical Assistance during some or all of the previous calendar year. Because you are not required to submit a 1095-B form with your tax return, the form 1095-B will be sent to Alaska Medicaid recipients only upon request. For additional information, including how to request your 1095-B, refer to IRS Form 1095-B FAQs.
