Employer-Provided Health Insurance Form 1095-C
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and how it affects your tax return changes significantly for your 2019 return. The most important change is that the individual mandate has gone away on your 2019 return. This means that you will no longer pay a penalty if you did not have health insurance in 2019. You are no longer required to report your health insurance on your return UNLESS you or a family member were enrolled in health insurance through the Marketplace and advance payments of the Premium Tax Credit were made to your insurance company to reduce your monthly premium payment. When you start a free tax return on eFile.com, we will automatically report the required information regarding your health insurance and the Premium Tax Credit on the correct tax forms.

Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, reports whether your employer offered you health insurance coverge and information about what coverage was offered to you. This form is for your information only and is not included in your tax return. You will only need to enter healthcare information if you were insured through the Marketplace.
A healthcare provider can be one of the following:
- an insurance company not in the Marketplace
- a government agency such as Medicare and Medicaid
- an employer who provides self-insured coverage (this is a health insurance plan offered by or on behalf of an employer to an employee)
