1094-C tax form

Employers heard some good news when the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) extended deadlines for reporting 2015 forms 1094/1095 (see “IRS Extends Deadline for 2015 ACA Reporting”).

Concerned about meeting this first year of Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting requirements? MedCost General Counsel Brad Roehrenbeck gives step-by-step instructions about how to fill out IRS forms 1094 and 1095 in a free webinar offered here.

Small self-funded employers (those with less than 50 full-time equivalent employees) are only required to meet one of the two ACA-mandated reporting obligations. Specifically, small self-funded employers must meet the Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) reporting obligation, by reporting on individuals to whom they have provided health coverage during 2015 using Forms 1094-B and 1095-B.

On the other hand, Applicable Large Employers (ALE)—those with more than 50 full-time (equivalent) employees—must report additional information beyond that included in the MEC reporting required of small employers. The IRS has developed a single set of forms (Forms 1094-C and 1095-C) that can be used by Applicable Large Employers to meet all of their reporting requirements.

These ACA-mandated reporting obligations are designed to document compliance with the Affordable Care Act’s two flagship mandates – the individual and employer mandates.

DeWebinar buttonadlines are soon approaching to file these forms. For more information, watch this webinar on 1094/1095 reporting.
