The Affordable Care Act requires employers who have at least 50 full-time employees who work at least 30 hours a week to offer affordable health insurance. Each year, those employers must send a statement form 1095C to all employees that are eligible for coverage. This is sent to both employees that elect or decline coverage, and show which months during the year the employee was eligible for coverage. While form 1095C includes health insurance information, the form 1094C is essentially a cover sheet for 1095C. The 1094C form has the following information listed: the employer’s personal information, the number of employees, a contact person and the number of 1095C forms that will be sent to the IRS. The IRS must receive the 1094C and 1095C paper forms by the end of February, or by the end of March if filed electronically.
