Beginning in January 2016, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) will provide the appropriate IRS Form 1095 to all retirees, annuitants, former spouses and all other individuals having TRICARE coverage during tax year 2015 to prove they have minimal essential health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. The forms will be reported with the 2015 federal tax returns. All customers should ensure that the U.S. Postal Service address DFAS has on file for them is current by checking their latest Retiree Account Statement or calling DFAS at 800-321-1080. People with a myPay account should logon and ensure their email address is current as well as make an IRS Form 1095 delivery method election. More information about the impact of the Affordable Care Act on federal income tax is available on the IRS website at www.irs.gov/Affordable-Care-Act.
