1095-B Health Coverage Forms Will be Mailed by January 31, 2017
Starting in 2015, public health programs such as NJ FamilyCare are required to provide you with documentation of the coverage you had for each month during the year.
You will receive a 1095-B Health Coverage Form, which is required while filling out your Federal tax return.
These documents are scheduled to be mailed by January 31st. You do not need to take any action at this time.
Form 1095-B will indicate the names of all family members who were covered by NJ FamilyCare. A copy of this form will also be reported to the Internal Revenue Service.
For more information about 1095-B Health Coverage Forms, visit www.irs.gov/form1095b.
