2017 ACA Reporting Solutions


The filing of 1095-C forms is required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for employers with 50 or more Full Time Equivalents (FTEs) during one or more months of the calendar year.  A 1095-C is filed for each full-time employee who worked for the employer during the year, indicating all offers of coverage in Part II of the form. Also, for self-insured employers, all coverage provided for employees and their dependents must be reported on the 1095-C forms in Part III.  All employers utilizing the State Health Plan are self-insured employers.

The filing of 1095-B forms is required for self-insured employers with less than 50 FTEs throughout the calendar year.  All coverage provided for employees and their dependents must be reported via the 1095-B forms for these employers.

The Plan has identified solution options for those employers looking for a complete or “Full Service” solution and for those who only need the data to support their own reporting solution. A description of the solution options is below.

The Plan is accepting sign-ups for the “Full Service” solutions.  Please respond to ACA@nctreasurer.com  before June 30, 2017, if you wish to participate.  Please indicate which solution you need, 1095-C or 1095-B.  If we do not hear from you, we will assume you are “Data Only” and that you have identified your own reporting solution.
