New Tax Forms: 1095-B and 1095-C
The Affordable Care Act requires insurance companies and employers to provide new tax forms. For this year only, the IRS isn't requiring Forms 1095-B and 1095-C when you file your 2015 tax return.
1095-B outlines the months when you and your family members were enrolled in medical insurance. Cigna will mail Forms 1095-B to City of Tucson plan participants (employees, retirees and COBRA) throughout January and February. If you changed medical coverage during 2015, you'll receive more than one 1095-B; together, the forms will document your complete coverage.
1095-C helps employees who worked an average of 30+ hours/week document the months they were offered City of Tucson medical insurance. The City will mail these forms by March 31st. Please be sure to keep it with your tax records in case you ever need it for an audit.
