Form 1095-B is used to report certain information to the IRS and to taxpayers about individuals who are covered by minimum essential coverage and therefore are not liable for the individual shared responsibility payment.
Minimum essential coverage includes government-sponsored programs, eligible employer-sponsored plans, individual market plans, and miscellaneous coverage designated by the Department of Health and Human Services.
Who needs to file 1095-B?
Every person that provides minimum essential coverage to an individual during a calendar year must file an information return and a transmittal. Most filers will use Forms 1094-B (transmittal) and 1095-B (return). However, employers (including government employers) subject to the employer shared responsibility provisions sponsoring self-insured group health plans will report information about the coverage in Part III of Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, instead of on Form 1095-B. In general, an employer with 50 or more full-time employees (including full-time equivalent employees) during the prior calendar year is subject to the employer shared responsibility provisions.
See the Instructions for Forms 1094-C and 1095-C for more information about who must file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C. Small employers that are not subject to the employer shared responsibility provisions sponsoring self-insured group health plans will use Forms 1094-B and 1095-B to report information about covered individuals.
