Form 1095-B

Form 1095-B provides information about your health coverage.

The form has four parts:

  • Part I identifies the policyholder for the insurance policy. For an employer-sponsored plan, for example, this would be the name of the employee.

  • Part II identifies the employer, if the insurance is employer-sponsored.

  • Part III identifies the insurance company providing the coverage.

  • Part IV lists the people covered under the policyholder’s policy, by year or by month.

Form 1095-C

The health care law defines that employers must offer health insurance to their workers. The law refers to them as “applicable large employers,” or ALEs.

Form 1095-C should be distributed to all employees of an ALE, or Applicable Large Employer. Even if an employee chooses not to participate in their employer’s health plan, the employee should still receive a 1095-C.
The form identifies:

  • The employee and the employer

  • The months of the year the employee was eligible for coverage.

  • The cost of the cheapest monthly premium the employee could have paid under the plan

The 1095-C helps provide proof of ALE insurance coverage for employees. If an ALE does not offer insurance coverage to its employee, the ALE may be subject to financial penalties.

Decision Process

How many FTE (full-time equivalent, defined as working 30 or more hours per week) employees do you have?

How many PT employees do you have?

Choose the timeframe to calculate FT equivalency for your PT employees?

Enter the average hours worked by part-time employee

Total Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) :

  • Fully insured and less than 50 FTE = no reporting requirement
  • Fully insured and 50 FTE or more = 1095-C (Parts 1 and 2 only)
  • Self-insured and less than 50 FTE = 1095-B
  • Self-insured and 50 FTE or more = 1095-C (all parts)

With, you can schedule the date that your forms are transmitted to the IRS. Scheduling your forms gives you time between when we email/USPS your forms to vendors, and when we send the forms to the IRS. This is useful because your vendors may have edits to make. You can make those changes in Tax1099 before the scheduled date at no extra charge. We automatically schedule your IRS eFile transmission at a week away from when you submit, or by the deadline. You can edit this date to match your preference.
