Some Blue Shield, Kaiser members get faulty Obamacare tax forms
San Francisco Chronicle

Thousands of Blue Shield and Kaiser Permanente customers who enrolled through Covered California last year received erroneous tax forms saying they did not have health insurance in 2015 — when they actually did. The faulty 1095-A forms were issued in late February, after the customers had already received correct 1095-A forms indicating they were covered. Covered California also sends the forms to the Internal Revenue Service to verify that people have health insurance as required under the Affordable Care Act and are therefore not subject to a penalty.
