NOTICE REGARDING PROOF OF HEALTH INSURANCE TAX FORMS

If you participated in the Directors Guild of America – Producer Health Plan (the “Plan”) in prior years, you likely received a tax form from the Plan confirming the months of enrollment for you and your dependents (labeled the Form 1095-B).  The purpose of this Form was to provide you with proof that you were enrolled in health insurance and satisfied your obligation under the Individual Shared Responsibility requirements (commonly referred to as the “individual mandate”). 

Effective as of January 1, 2019, Congress eliminated the individual penalty for failure to maintain health insurance coverage.  As such, the IRS has determined that the Form 1095-B no longer needs to be distributed to plan participants. The Form 1095-B is not required as part of your annual tax filing. In accordance with these guidelines, you will not receive a Form 1095-B from the Plan for the 2020 tax year unless you request a copy. 

Forms will be available by written request beginning no sooner than March 1, 2021.  To request a copy of the Form 1095-B, please send your request, including your name and Plan ID number, to ACAquestions@dgaplans.org or click the button below.

Written requests may be mailed to:

Directors Guild of America-Producer Pension and Health Plans
ATTN: Eligibility Department
5055 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 600
Los Angeles, CA 90036

Please allow up to 30 days from receipt (or, if later, 30 days from March 1, 2021) for your request to be processed.
