A 1095-C form is similar to W-2 form, but you do not need this form in order to file your taxes. Your employer sends one copy of each form to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and one copy to you. A W-2 form reports your annual earnings. A 1095-C form reports your healthcare coverage throughout the year.

For tax year 2015, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that all employees “considered full time for purposes of the ACA” receive a 1095-C tax form from their employers. Employee meets the ACA full-time requirement if they averaged 30 or more hours each week during the look-back measurement period between November 1, 2013, and October 31, 2014. If eligible, you will receive the form on or before March 31. Upon receipt, be sure to review the form for accuracy and keep it for your tax records. 

All dependents should have a valid Social Security number in Ultimate for processing.

An IRS website, Questions and Answers about Health Care Information Forms for Individuals (Forms 1095-A, 1095-B, and 1095-C), covers most of what you need to know about the 1095C tax form. If you have other questions, contact Roberta Ryan.
