Blue Cross, BCN to discontinue mailing Form 1095-B based on IRS guidance

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 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 and Blue Care Network (Blue Cross) won’t be mailing Form 1095-B to fully insured group members in 2020 (for the 2019 year).

Blue Cross will continue filing the forms with the IRS for fully insured groups. Employers must send data corrections to Blue Cross before April 8, 2020, to meet the IRS filing deadline.

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
600 E. Lafayette Blvd.
Detroit, MI 48226
