  • Form 1094-B, and
  • Form 1095-B

for MEC reporting, while large employers will use

  • Form 1095-A,
  • Form 1095-B,
  • Form 1094-C

for ESR reporting and, in some cases, MEC reporting.

IRS also has posted a draft of Form 8941 for claiming the small employer tax credit for offering health insurance through a SHOP exchange. Draft instructions for the forms are not available yet.
