Due to tax law changes, beginning Jan. 1, 2019, you'll no longer be required to have minimum essential coverage. Each January you'll still get an IRS Form 1095 from your pay center listing the coverage you had during the previous tax year.
Taxpayers should receive Affordable Care Act information statements from their employer(s) or coverage provider by early March regarding their health insurance coverage.
Form 1095-C is sent to certain employees of applicable large employers. Applicable large employers are those with 50 or more full-time employees.
Form 1095-C contains information about the health coverage offered by your employer in that tax year. This may include information about whether you enrolled in coverage.
Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the amount of the individual shared responsibility payment is reduced to zero for months beginning after December 31, 2018.
Beginning in Tax Year 2019, Forms 1040 and 1040-SR will not have the “full-year health care coverage or exempt” box and Form 8965, Health Coverage Exemptions, will no longer be used. You need not make a shared responsibility payment or file Form 8965, Health Coverage Exemptions, with your tax return if you don’t have a minimum essential coverage for part or all of the year.
You do not need form 1095-C to complete your taxes. Form 1095-C does not get filed with your tax return. Keep a copy of the form with your tax records for future reference. If you have any questions about the information contained on the 1095-C form, please contact the issuer.
