Retiree Insurance Information   

  • The Affordable Care Act requires issuers of insurance and some employers to send Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to members.  A list of Frequently Asked Questions has been compiled for those who are anticipating these forms. 01/19/2018
  • Affordable Care Act tax Forms 1095-B and 1095-C - Per IRS guidance, Forms 1095-B and 1095-C are for record keeping purposes only and are not required to be filed with a participant’s 2017 tax return. You do not need this form to file your taxes. The forms are proof of the 2017 offer and enrollment in health insurance coverage. The information on these forms indicates that the participant and any spouse or dependent were offered coverage and the respective enrollments, if any, for each month during 2017. 01/19/2018
