IRS Issues More Draft Instructions for 2016 Health Reporting
Calendar16 August 2016

The IRS has released draft instructions for 2016 Forms 1094-B and 1095-B, confirming that health insurers and self-insured employers can expect few changes when reporting minimum essential coverage (MEC) provided to individuals in 2016. The Service posted preliminary 2016 versions of these forms in June, but instructions noting what's new became available only last week. The IRS uses data from this reporting to administer assessments under the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate provisions. Separately, the IRS earlier released draft 2016 employer shared-responsibility forms and instructions that applicable large employers will use to report coverage offered to employees and their dependents.
