    How Applicable Large Employers Should Report Health Care Coverage – 

    As Part of the Employer Mandate

    The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is hosting a webinar for employers on  August 14th, at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time to describe how applicable large employers should report on the health coverage they offered full-time employees, effective in 2015.

    The Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 6056 is part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), and will help the IRS administer compliance with the employer mandate.

    Large Employer Definition – Who Must File

    As part of the employer mandate, large employers with 50 or more full-time employees (including full-time equivalents) need to report on all of the employees offered coverage during the prior calendar year. The IRS made draft forms available on July 24, 2014. We are still awaiting official instructions for completing these forms.

    Employers will file:

    • Form 1095-C to both the IRS and named individuals.
