Tax information for Fund participants

NYSNA Benefits Fund participants may currently request a copy of the Affordable Care Act health insurance tax form called “Form 1095-B” by:

  • mail at PO Box 12430, Albany, NY 12212-2430
  • phone at (877) RN BENEFITS [762-3633]

This form proves that your healthcare coverage through the Benefits Fund meets minimum standards, or minimum essential coverage required by the ACA. The form also verifies this minimal essential coverage for any dependents on your plan, including a spouse and eligible dependent children. While you can save a copy of this form for your records, you do not need a copy of this form to file your tax return. If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact the NYSNA Benefits Fund at (877) RN BENEFITS [762-3633].
