What you need to know:
Starting with the 2019 tax year, the individual mandate penalty no longer applies. As a result, individuals won’t be penalized for lacking medical coverage, and they no longer need to provide proof of insurance coverage when they file their federal tax return. Due to this change, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan won’t be mailing Form 1095-B to fully insured group members in 2020.
If members still want a Form 1095-B, they can access it through the bcbsm.com member site, or they may request the form in the following ways:
• Call the number on the back of their Blue Cross ID card.
• Send a letter to:
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan
