Extended deadline for tax forms 1095-B and 1095-C is March 2

Anthem is required to file forms 1095-B and 1094-B electronically with the IRS for all fully insured plans. The deadline to file federal tax forms 1095-B and 1095-C is March 2, 2023. The IRS has permanently extended the deadline from January 31. Fully insured and self-insured (Administrative Services Only) employers with 50 or more full-time employees are considered Applicable Large Employers (ALE) and are required to also file form 1095-C along with 1094-C. 

We will also submit state filings for both the District of Columbia and New Jersey.

Vermont does not require a state filing.

Employers will need to submit state filings in Rhode Island. Anthem is not licensed there.

We will send additional forms and reminders of IRS reporting throughout the year, following this approximate timeline:

  • 1095-B and 1094-B forms for Small Group Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangement (MEWA) and Anthem Balance Funding (ABF) groups will be posted to EmployerAccess in early February.
  • 1095-B forms will be mailed to all fully insured members through the end of February.
  • Social Security number (SSN) collection: In early spring, we will send letters to members who do not have a social security number on file with us.
  • SSN and name reconciliation: We will send letters to members in late spring if their names, birthdates, or Social Security numbers do not match what is on the IRS taxpayer database.

Please contact your sales representative for more information.
