Forms 1094-C and 1095-C Guided Tour

Written by benefitexpress | March 14, 2016
Reporting under the PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) is a task that snowballs in its complexity the more you try to gain an overall understanding - which is why there has been extensive communication in the HR & insurance industries as it's been a group effort to comprehend the implications caused by the PPACA.

One thing is clear: there are a lot of rules that apply on a case-by-case basis, which is why the task of reporting becomes immensely easier (still, not a cake-walk) once you've determined 1) how your company is defined (with respect to ALE status), and 2) how employees are defined (with respect to Full-Time status).

Once you have successfully defined and filed a few dozen employees, reporting becomes another manageable part of your annual routine.

Below you'll find a high-level overview of how to file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C.
