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.

When would you need to file a 1095-B

Form 1095-B is used to report certain information to the IRS and to taxpayers about individuals who are covered by minimum essential coverage. Eligibility for certain types of minimum essential coverage can affect a taxpayer's eligibility for the premium tax credit.

Every person that provides minimum essential coverage to an individual during a calendar year must file an information return reporting the coverage. Filers will use Form 1094-B (transmittal) to submit Forms 1095-B (returns).

Employers (including government employers) subject to the employer shared responsibility provisions sponsoring self-insured group health plans generally will report information about the coverage in Part III of Form 1095-C instead of on Form 1095-B.

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)

1095-B Deadline and Important dates

With Tax1099.com, 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.
