Tax Forms and Information
Under the Affordable Care Act, health insurance issuers, self-insuring employers, government agencies, and other providers of minimum essential coverage are required to file annual information returns and statements regarding health coverage provided to enrollees, and furnish them upon request. Two forms offered by the IRS for this purpose are the 1095-B and 1095-C tax forms. How your health insurance was provided in 2019 will determine which form(s) you may receive.
Note: On December 2, 2019, the IRS announced extended deadlines for certain 2019 Minimum Essential Coverage (Section 6055) and Large Employer Shared Responsibility (Section 6056) reporting required to be completed in early 2020. Specifically, 1095 Forms sent to individuals are now due by March 2, 2020. Read IRS Notice 2019-63 for more details.
