Deadline extended for some 1095 forms

There are reports that insurers or employers may be delayed in delivering their 1095-B or 1095-C forms to their clients or employees to show creditable coverage for 2017.

Generally, you must file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C by Feb. 28 if filing on paper (or March 31 if filing electronically) of the year following the calendar year to which the return relates. For calendar year 2017, Forms 1094-C and 1095-C are required to be filed by Feb. 28, 2018, or April 2, 2018, if filing electronically. Forms 1095-C for the 2017 calendar year must be furnished by Jan. 31, 2018.

  • Form 1095-B shows that your health insurance met the minimum essential requirements and therefore you are not liable for the individual shared responsibility payment.
  • Form 1095-C is filed and furnished to any employee of an Applicable Large Employers (ALE) member who is a full-time employee for one or more months of the calendar. ALE members must report that information for all twelve months of the calendar year for each employee.
