Watch for IRS 1095-B forms from your health insurance provider

HealthSelect and Scott & White have mailed new IRS Form 1095-B to plan participants. The form indicates that employees or their covered dependents had health coverage during all or part of 2015, and is to be used when completing 2015 federal income tax returns.

Employees who are enrolled in one of these plans who have not received the form should call HealthSelect at 866-336-9371 or Scott & White at 800-321-7947.

For more information, see the Form 1095-B Frequently Asked Questions webpage on the Employees Retirement System website.

ACC will mail the new IRS Form 1095-C to all full-time (30 hours/week) employees soon. Watch for it in the mail. This form is ACC’s required verification to employees and the IRS that it offers insurance coverage to its employees.

HealthSelect prescription drug annual deductible change

Effective January 1, the $50 deductible for HealthSelect prescription drug benefit coverage is based on the calendar year (January 1, 2016 to December 31) rather than the plan year. HealthSelect participants must pay the deductible each calendar year before they are eligible to receive prescription drug benefits.

For plan year 2015 (September 1, 2014 – August 31, 2015), the $50 prescription deductible period was extended to run through the end of the calendar year (December 31, 2015).
