Understanding Your Health Coverage

Form 1095-C, with Syed Professional Services

In today’s healthcare landscape, navigating insurance plans and tax implications can be confusing. Your Health Coverage plays a crucial role in this process. This informative guide by Syed Professional Services explores what Form 1095-C is, the information it contains, and how it can impact your tax situation. We’ll also explain how our tax professionals can ensure you understand and utilize this form effectively.

What is Form 1095-C (Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage)?

Form 1095-C is an informational statement issued by Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) to their employees. ALEs are typically businesses with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees. The form details the health insurance coverage offered to the employee during the previous tax year. It’s important to note that Your Health Coverage is not a tax form and should not be filed with your tax return.

Who Receives Form 1095-C?

ALE employees offered health insurance coverage during any part of the calendar year will typically receive Form Your Health Coverage from their employer. This applies even if the employee ultimately declined the employer-sponsored health plan and opted for coverage elsewhere.

What Information Does Form 1095-C Contain?

Your Health Coverage typically includes the following information:

  • Part I: Employer and Employee Information: This section identifies the employer, the employee, and the employee’s contact information for any questions about the form’s validity.
  • Part II: Health Coverage Offered: This section details the health insurance coverage options the employer offers to the employee during the year. It may specify if individual and family coverage was available.
  • Part II (Optional): Months of Coverage:  In some cases, employers may provide details about the specific months during the year when the employee was eligible for coverage under the employer’s plan.
  • Part II (Optional): Cost of Lowest-Cost Monthly Premium: If applicable, this section may indicate the cost of the lowest-cost monthly premium for employer-sponsored health insurance offered to the employee.

Understanding the Importance of Form 1095-C

While not a tax form itself, Form Your Health Coverage plays a vital role in several situations:

  • Verifying Health Insurance Coverage:  The form records the health insurance options offered by your employer during the year.
  • Claiming the Premium Tax Credit:  If you purchased health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace and are claiming the premium tax credit on your tax return, Form can help determine your eligibility. This credit helps offset the cost of health insurance premiums for qualified individuals and families.
  • Reconciling Records: If there are any discrepancies with your employer’s records regarding health insurance coverage, This Form can be used for reference and potential clarification.
