A new annual form required by the government confirming health-care coverage under the Affordable Care Act was mailed March 10 to employees. It also is available through the myUT portal by clicking Tax Forms under the Employee tab.
As announced in UT News in December and February, Form 1095-C confirms to the Internal Revenue Service that employees and their family members had qualifying health coverage during the 2015 calendar year.
As a reminder, Form 1095-C was distributed to all full-time and part-time benefit-eligible employees who either had health coverage with UT for at least one month during 2015 or were offered coverage with the University during 2015 but declined. Employees who were not eligible and did not receive health coverage will not receive a Form 1095-C.
If Form 1095-C is consistent with what is reflected in employees’ tax filings, the form should kept for their records. If the form is not consistent, employees should contact the UT Benefits Department. Employees with questions about their tax return or how to use Form 1095-C information on their tax return should consult with their tax adviser.
For convenience, a list of frequently asked questions about the form has been developed and is available here.
Employees with questions about Form 1095-C should contact Human Resources and Talent Development at 419.530.4747 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
