Employers with 50 or more full-time employees (including full-time equivalent employees) (subject to section 4980H of the Internal Revenue Code (“Code”)), generally meaning employers in the preceding calendar year, use Form 1094-C, Transmittal of Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage Information Returns, and Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, to report the information required under Code sections 6055 and 6056 about offers of health coverageand enrollment in health coverage for their employees.
Form 1094-C must be used to report to the IRS summary information for each employer and to transmit Forms 1095-C to the IRS.
Form 1095-C is used to report information about each employee.
The information reported on Form 1094-C and Form 1095-C is used in determining whether an employer owes a payment under the employer shared responsibility provisions under section 4980H. Form 1095-C is also used by the IRS and the employee in determining the eligibility of the employee for the premium tax credit.
Employers that offer employer-sponsored self-insured coverage also use Form 1095-C to report information to the IRS and to employees about individuals who have minimum essential coverage under the employer plan and therefore have met the individual shared responsibility requirement for the months that they are covered under the plan.
