2015 Tax Information

In order to meet Affordable Care Act requirements around minimum essential coverage reporting, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) will be issuing 1095-B forms early next year to insured members as well as providing reporting to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Your student health plan meets minimum essential coverage.

All student health members that had coverage during the 2015 calendar year will receive a 1095-B form and it will indicate the months each person was covered during this time. 1095-B forms will be sent to the address we have on file on or before Jan. 31, 2016.

If you do not receive your form(s), need a replacement copy, or have general questions please contact the Student Health customer service department at 855-267-0214.
