Ring in the New Year with new ACA reporting requirements
 
     
  The New Year will ring in new compliance reporting responsibilities for employers under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  
     
  The ACA added sections 6055 and 6056 to the Internal Revenue Code, requiring that all applicable large employers (ALE) (employers that employed an average of at least 50 full-time employees plus any full-time equivalent employees during the preceding year) file an annual report that ensures compliance with the employer mandate.  
     
  ALE members that sponsor self-insured health plans are required to report to the IRS whether they offer a health plan that provides MEC or an MVP, as defined by the ACA, and furnish employees with the information required under sections 6055 and 6056 on a single form.  
     
  The reports will be made using IRS Forms 1094-C and 1095-C.  
     
  Employers who do not submit an annual IRS return or provide individual statements to all full-time employees may be subject to a penalty of up to $250 per return, with a maximum annual of $3 million.  
     
  There are two classes of self-funded employers that must make a filing. They are:  
     
  Self-funded with fewer than 50 employees:  
    1. Send employees Form 1095-B by January 31, 2016  
    2. File Forms 1094-B and 1095-B with the IRS electronically by March 31, 2016  
     
  Self-funded with 50 or more employees:  
    1. Send employees Form 1095-C by January 31, 2016  
    2. File Forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS electronically by March 31, 2016
