The Form 1095-C confirms that the Catholic Diocese of Jackson offered full-time employees healthcare coverage during the previous year, and if so, whether you had coverage under your employer’s plan.
What Employees Need to Know About the Form 1095-C
Why am I receiving this form?
You will receive Form 1095-C as part of the requirements under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
The ACA created two new mandates:
- The individual mandate that requires all individuals to have healthcare coverage.
- The employer mandate that requires applicable employers to offer coverage to all full-time employees.
The purpose of Form 1095-C is to verify the months in which you and your dependents were offered or covered by your employer’s healthcare plan, which satisfies the individual coverage requirement.
What is the form for?
Form 1095-C is an official document that employers are required to submit to the IRS each year. You also receive a copy.
When should I expect to receive the form?
You should receive your previous year’s 1095-C the beginning of February (around the same time that your annual W-2 arrives).
What do I do with the form?
Like your W-2, your 1095-C contains information that will be collected when you file your tax return. Be sure to store the form in a safe place where you can locate it when you are ready to do your taxes.
What do I do if I do not receive the form?
If you have not received your 1095-C by the end of February, contact the Benefits Office to request a copy. If you recently moved and did not update your address with HR in time, it might have been sent to your previous address. Keeping your contact information up-to-date will help prevent delivery issues.
