ACA Information Reporting Requirements Under IRS Sections 6055 and 6056 (Forms 1094 & 1095)

The Affordable Care Act requires insurers, self-insuring employers, and other parties that provide minimum essential health coverage to report information on this coverage to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and to covered individuals (referred to as "section 6055 reporting"). Large employers (generally those with 50 or more full-time employees) are also required to report information to the IRS and to their employees about their compliance with the employer shared responsibility ("pay or play") provisions and the health care coverage they have offered (referred to as "section 6056 reporting").
