WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration says it’s making progress trying to correct a tax-form error that affected 820,000 customers of HealthCare.gov.

Administration officials said Friday that 740,000 corrected forms have gone out, and another 80,000 will be mailed next week.

The issue involves a new government form called a 1095-A.

It’s like a W-2 form for health care for people who got subsidized private insurance under President Barack Obama’s law. Consumers who got health insurance tax credits need the information on the 1095-A to file their taxes.

Last month, federal officials said more than 800,000 consumers had gotten the wrong details on premiums.

HealthCare.gov CEO Kevin Counihan says some customers may still have other errors on their forms, like the wrong coverage dates. He’s urging them to call HealthCare.gov at 800-318-2596.
