A message for eligible UTEP Employees
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), employees eligible to enroll in the UT Select medical plan will receive a Form 1095-C on March 2016, by mail to the address the Office of Human Resources has on file. This form will be in addition to receiving your standard W-2 form.
This new document contains information that you may need to submit with your 2015 income tax filing. This form will be required by the IRS next tax season for everyone enrolled in the UT Select Medical Plan during the 2016 calendar year.
You will need to file Form 1095-C with your 2015 tax filing ONLY IF:
· You declined UT Select and purchased health insurance coverage through a State Health Insurance Exchange or the Federal Market Place, HealthCare.gov, in 2015 for yourself or any of your dependents for some or all months during the 2015 year.
· You purchased health insurance for yourself or any dependents and received the Advance Premium Tax Credit.
· You wish to claim the premium tax credit. The form provides information that will help determine whether you’re eligible to receive or continue receiving the Advance Premium Tax Credit.
If you and your dependents have been covered through UT Select for the entire 2015 calendar year, you do not need to attach Form 1095-C to your income tax return – just use it for reference.
If we do not have a current address on file, please submit a change of address request to the Office of Human Resources. If you have questions about the form, please email Human Resources at Benefits@utep.edu or call 915-747-5202.
