What is a Form 1095C and what should I do with it?

This is a new tax form that employers are required to provide to employees who are eligible for health insurance under the rules of the Affordable Care Act. This form is new this year. Form 1095C displays the months of the year and if/when you and your spouse/partner and/or dependents were offered and enrolled in health insurance provided by your employer.

Employers must provide a copy to each appropriate employee and to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The IRS will use this form to administer the Employer Shared Responsibility Provision and help administer premium tax credits. You should keep this form with your annual tax return. You do not need to send it to the IRS.
