Starting January 11, 2016, we will have a dedicated team to help our fully insured group members with their questions about the 1095-B tax form. This team can confirm and explain what is on the 1095-B form, so your employees can report their coverage status. But we will NOT be able to answer general tax questions or give tax advice.
As you know, part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA or health care reform law) requires all Americans to show proof of health care coverage when they file their income taxes in 2016. This information is captured on the 1095-B tax form.
The phone number for our 1095-B tax form helpline for members is 1-844-301-5617. Feel free to share this number with your employees, keeping in mind that it's a temporary phone number set up for tax season.
Your employees also may find it helpful to refer to this FAQ on the IRS website: Questions and Answers About Health Care Information Forms for Individuals (Forms 1095-A, 1095-B, and 1095-C).
