Beginning 2015 tax year, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) required employers to issue IRS Form 1095s to report employer sponsored medical plans. This information is necessary to document health insurance coverage on individual tax returns. This is the first year Form 1095 will be required to file with taxes. Sign up on At Your Service Online (AYSO) to receive your Form 1095 electronically and avoid any delays.
In order to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and avoid delays, AYSO is now offering the option for employees scheduled to receive the Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, electronically instead of a printed paper copy by mail. To change your delivery method: 1) access AYSO; 2) under Income & Taxes, select W2 and 1095-C; and 3) choose Select 1095-C Delivery Method. A new page is presented allowing you to select your delivery method. The delivery method can be changed through December 31st for tax year 2016. An email address is required to be on file before you may select the electronic delivery method. If you select electronic delivery, you will be notified at the email address specified when your individual 1095-C is available for viewing. By default, employees will receive a printed, paper copy of their 1095-C unless electing to change to an electronic format.
Changes made through the AYSO application by December 31st, 2016 will impact the 2016 Form 1095-C delivery method. The delivery method selected will remain on file for future tax years. Additional information on the ACA is available at: http://ucnet.universityofcalifornia.edu/compensation-and-benefits/health-plans/medical/affordable-care-act/index.html.
