Members Will Get New 1095-B Forms in 2016

The IRS requires all health insurance companies to issue new 1095-B forms each year under regulation 6055 for fully insured employers. These forms provide proof that taxpayers had minimum essential coverage for the entire year.

We'll mail forms to our members no later than January 31, 2016, and file them with the IRS by March 31, 2016. Data that will be reported includes:

  • Insurer information
  • Employer information
  • Covered individual information
  • Months of coverage

More information will be available on Member Central beginning January 15, 2016.
