Commonly asked questions about information on the Form 1095-C
What is Form 1095-C?
Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided (Self-Insured) Health Insurance Offer and Coverage. The 1095-C form is mailed to all full-time employees and part-time employees who are eligible for the district health insurance. A 1095-C form is provided EVEN if an employee did NOT take the district health insurance but was eligible last year.
When will I receive these health care tax forms?
MSD Washington Township mailed the Form 1095-C on January 18, and a courtesy copy is available in each eligible employee’s portal account under “Documents=>Federal Form 1095.”
Must I wait to file my tax return until I receive these forms?
It is not necessary to wait for Form 1095-C in order to file (IRS Notice 2018-06—www.irs.gov/aca).
Some taxpayers may not receive a Form 1095-C by the time they are ready to file their tax return. While the information on these forms may assist in preparing a return, they are not required. Individual taxpayers should not wait for these forms, and file their returns as they normally would.
Like last year, taxpayers can prepare and file their returns using other information about their health insurance. You should not attach any of these forms to your tax return.
In column 15 on my 1095-C, there is a $ amount, and I didn’t take the district health insurance. Was this amount taken out of my pay anyway?
No, by law, the employer has to report what the monthly cost to you would be for the lowest-cost, employee-only portion of the district health insurance that has minimum essential coverage providing minimum value.
What do the code(s) mean in column 14?
The codes and descriptions are on the back of the 1095-C form under “Part II Employee Offer of Coverage, Lines 14-16.”
