As of January 2017, insurers are now required to report all claims to the California Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB). These include claims for which any medical care is provided and medical costs are incurred, including those involving first aid treatment, even if the insurer did not make the payment.

This is an important reminder that the deadline to mail the IRS form 1095 to covered employees is fast approaching. WGAT will mail a copy of the 1095-B to employees on behalf of employers with less than 50 full-time employees by the IRS deadline of March 31, 2016. In order to act, we need your company’s legal name, employer tax ID number, and employer size no later than March 25, 2016.
