2015 IRS Form 1095-C

Posted on: May 4th, 2016 by Robby Seitz

Form 1095-C (Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage) is a new tax form required by the IRS as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to report information about health insurance coverage offered to you by the University. If you were enrolled or eligible to enroll in a UM health plan during calendar year 2015, you will receive an IRS Form 1095-C by March 31, 2016.

The University will provide Form 1095-C (employee statement) to employees and will file copies with the IRS.

Form 1095-C is a tax form. While information on this form may assist in preparing your 2015 federal income tax return, it is not required. It is not necessary to wait for Form 1095-C in order to file.

Please consult with your tax advisor if you have questions about how the information reported on the 1095-C will affect your tax return and taxes. Additional information about this form and other Health Care Information Forms may be found on the IRS website.
