What is Form 1095-B?

Form 1095-B is a tax form used to report certain information to the IRS and to taxpayers about individuals who are covered by minimum essential health insurance coverage. Insurers providing minimum essential health insurance coverage during a calendar year must file the information return reporting the coverage to the IRS and make it available to the contract holder within 30 days of request.*
