  • Form 1095-B Mailing

    Everyone enrolled in our retiree non-Medicare PPO health care plan (administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan) at any time in 2016 will receive Form 1095-B in the mail from the Office of Retirement Services. The statements will begin mailing this week and wrap up no later than January 30th, 2017. You should receive the statement in 3-5 business days after it hits the mail. 

    Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) and Medicare are responsible for providing Form 1095-B to anyone covered by either of those entities at any time during 2016.

    Form 1095-B is a health coverage statement, required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The form is used to report health coverage of individuals who meet minimum essential coverage standards to the IRS on income tax returns. It is your responsibility to make copies of the 1095-B form for your spouse and/or dependents. For specific guidance on information found on the 1095-B statement, contact your tax professional or the IRS.

    The IRS has published some general questions and answers about the health care reporting forms, including what to do with them.
