You DO NOT need Form 1095-B to file your taxes. Just like last year, you can check a box on your tax return verifying you had qualifying health coverage.
You can expect to receive your Form 1095-B for the 2017 tax year in the mail by January 31, 2018. Check to make sure it’s accurate and keep it with the rest of your tax documents.
If you have any questions regarding Form 1095-B, please contact the Administration Office at (844) 811-6789, option 4.
