DENVER (KDVR) — Connect for Health Colorado is reaching out to clients who reported not receiving their 1095-A tax forms.
The health insurance provider told FOX31 approximately 2,400 accounts were affected out of the 232,000 enrollments in 2022, so most clients received the proper tax documentation.
However, some customers have spoken to FOX31 and shared what they have experienced ahead of the tax deadline on April 18.
Tom Major told FOX31 he knew something was wrong when he tried for over a month to get his 1095-A form.
“I can’t file my taxes,” said Major, who will owe money on his return.
Diane Krueger, who lives near a rural mountain community, said she was unable to properly communicate with the insurer’s website.
“I work from home, I have my office phone connected to my computer,” she said.
The Problem Solvers reached out to a spokesperson who confirms data errors are behind the lack of tax forms.
A statement provided to FOX31 said in part, “we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused people who are waiting for their tax forms and deeply regret the errors.”
The statement also references the communication errors stating, “ …our customer service center was experiencing intermittent issues with ‘we’re closed’ errors that have been fixed as of Friday, March 17.”
