Annual IRS reporting is required for certain health plans and employer sizes. Some carriers handle this reporting on behalf of the employer/client or some partially help prepare and furnish the data needed. Some carriers do not do anything to assist with this process, and, ultimately, it’s the employer’s responsibility to make sure this process is done properly.

- Section 6055 applies to providers of minimum essential coverage (MEC), such as health insurance issuers and employers with self-insured health plans. These entities generally use Forms 1094-Band 1095-B to report information about the coverage they provided during the previous year.
- Section 6056 applies to ALEs—generally, those employers with 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalents, in the previous year. ALEs use Forms 1094-Cand 1095-C to report information relating to the health coverage that they offer (or do not offer) to their full-time employees.
Employers reporting under both Sections 6055 and 6056—specifically, ALEs with self-insured plans—use a combined reporting method by filing Forms 1094-C and 1095-C.
