It has been brought to our attention that the some 1095-B forms (required under the Affordable Care Act for reporting minimum essential coverage for subscribers) that were mailed to CaliforniaChoice® members on Friday, March 11, incorrectly listed CalChoice as the employer name and employer address. Please note that the rest of the content of the form was correct and the only errors were the employer’s name and address. Also note that these errors will not impact evidence of employee coverage for the past year.
The correction is already in process and will be completed by the end of March, with corrected forms to be sent beginning in mid-April. When the corrected 1095-B forms are produced for mailing, they’ll also be archived as PDFs on the member’s page on kp.org for download. Individuals don’t need to wait for the corrected forms to file their taxes. These forms are only required for their records as proof that an employee had the type of coverage required by the Affordable Care Act. We’ll send the correct information electronically to the IRS as part of our 1095-B submission.
Kaiser Permanente call centers can respond to member questions, but they will not be able to generate corrected forms outside of the scheduled timeline. If you have questions, please contact Member Services at 1-844-477-0450.
We thank you in advance for your patience and apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you or your clients.
