And here are some 1095C pointers:
- Use the 1094C form to tell the IRS about whether you offered workers Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC)
- You may see the term ALE used in the 1094 and 1095 instructions. This means Applicable Large Employer. As in an employer who must file the forms.
- Use the 1095C form to show what coverage a worker had, what months they had coverage, or to show self insured coverage. You'll file one form per employee.
- If an employer provided self-insured coverage. This section is used for showing family members who had coverage.
