The 1095-B Tax Form: Health Insurance Verification for 2023

November 16, 2023

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act includes a requirement that many people have health insurance or pay a penalty. Compliance with this mandate is administered by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)*. The IRS requires health insurance companies to report the individuals they covered per tax year. The reports need to include Social Security Numbers (SSN) or International Tax Identification Numbers (ITIN) to distinguish unique individuals. Insurance companies are also required to give individuals a copy of what they have reported, in the form of a tax form called 1095B. *Information on this page should not be considered tax advice or guidance.

If you have been a covered member of the Student Health Insurance Benefits Plan in tax year 2015 or later, the insurance companies for the plan during that year (the company that issues you your insurance card) will ask you to submit your personal information, including your SSN or ITIN. You have the option to comply with the requests. Note: Insurance companies will provide secure methods to submit your information. Never provide your SSN or ITIN over the phone.

For members in tax years:

2023 (Coverage periods SP23 SU23, AU23)

2022 (Coverage periods SP22, SU22, AU22)

2021 (Coverage periods SP21, SU21, AU21)
