Final Instructions for IRS Reporting on Individual and Employer Mandates

Please feel free to revisit those articles as they contain valuable links to the necessary draft IRS forms, reporting instructions, fact sheets and more:

    Necessary Forms and Instructions for IRS Reporting

    Insurers and employers have two (2) forms they must provide the IRS.

    • Each must provide a form that serves as a cover letter as well as forms providing data on the individual or employer mandate. The forms are to be completed and filed as follows:
      • Employers will file Form 1094-C (a transmittal/cover sheet) to the IRS only,
      • And Form 1095-C to both the IRS and named individuals. If its plan is insured, the employer will only complete Parts I and II of Form 1095-C.
      • Insurers will send Form 1094-B (a transmittal/cover sheet) to the IRS only,
      • And Form 1095-B to both the IRS and named individuals for insured coverage only.
