As a requirement of the Affordable Care Act, the 2018 federal tax return will ask if members and their dependents had qualifying health care coverage in 2018. The 1095-B Form will detail the 2018 coverage and should be kept with the member’s tax records.
In late January / early February, we will send off-exchange individual members and members of fully-insured groups a printed copy of their 1095-B Form* and it will also be available in MyChart. If members don’t want to receive a printed copy in the mail, they should update their preferences in MyChart by January 1, 2019. Quartz will email members when the form is available to print from MyChart. Please note that the IRS has extended the deadline for distribution of 1095-B Forms from January 31, 2019 to March 4, 2019. We are making every effort to comply with the original deadline.
*BadgerCare Plus, Health Insurance Marketplace (HIM), Medicare Select and Senior Choice members may receive a similar form from Medicaid, HIM or Medicare. They will not receive a 1095-B form from Quartz.
