Form 1095-B, Health Coverage provides coverage information you, your spouse (if you file a joint return), and individuals you claim as dependents had qualifying health coverage (referred to as "minimum essential coverage") for some or all months during the year. Individuals who don't have minimum essential coverage and don't qualify for an exemption from this requirement may be liable for the individual shared responsibility payment.

Note. Providers of minimum essential coverage are required to furnish only one Form 1095-B for all individuals whose coverage is reported on that form. As the recipient of this Form 1095-B, you should provide a copy to other individuals covered under the policy if they request it for their records.

Form 1095-B is not required to be filed with your tax return. If you had full-year coverage for 2018 no action needs to be taken with Form 1095-B. If you did not have full-year coverage, use the information on Form 1095-B to report the months of coverage you did have.
