NO I DO NOT FILE IT. If your employer sponsors an insured plan, the insurance company is required to file Form 1095-B. If your employer’s medical coverage is self-insured, the plan sponsor is required to file Form 1095-B. If a plan sponsor of a self-insured plan is also required to file Form 1095-C, the Form 1095-B and Form 1095-C information can be combined onto one Form 1095-C filing.Form 1095-B reports the name, address and social security number of all individuals ,employees, spouses, dependents and others, who are covered under an employer’s medical plan and the number of months during which the individual had at least one day of coverage. Beginning in 2014, individuals are required to be covered by health coverage that provides “minimum essential benefits” or else pay a penalty tax. The IRS will use the information provided by Form 1095-B to verify which individuals have such coverage through an employer and are therefore not subject to the individual mandate penalty tax.
