Updating Your TIN or SSN
You may have received a letter from us asking you to provide and/or update TINs/SSNs for you and any dependents (if applicable).
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, requires every U.S citizen, U.S. national or lawfully present immigrant to have health care coverage or pay a penalty unless they qualify for an exemption. This means that taxpayers must report their health care coverage status to the IRS when they file their tax return.
Health care coverage status is generally reported via IRS Form 1095-B, which will be sent to you and to the IRS by EmblemHealth. This form reports about your health coverage and the type of coverage in which you were enrolled. In order for us to complete this form, we must have Tax Identification Numbers (TINs), which for most individuals is the Social Security Number (SSN), for all covered members.
