About IRS 1094-C and 1095-C Forms for ACA Reporting

Employers with 50 or more full-time employees—including full-time equivalent (FTE) employees—use IRS Forms 1094-C and 1095-C to report the information about offers of health coverage and enrollment in health coverage for their employees.

These forms are used to determine whether an employer will owe payments under the employer shared responsibility provisions under section 4980H ("Shared responsibility for employers regarding health coverage") of the ACA.

Form 1095-C is also used in determining eligibility of employees for premium tax credits. Employers that offer employer-sponsored self-insured coverage also use Form 1095-C to report information to the IRS and to taxpayers about individuals who are offered minimum essential coverage under the employer plan.

Employers are required to file Forms 1094-C and 1095-C with the IRS and to furnish a copy of Form 1095-C to the employee. Vista processing workflows allow you to initialize and maintain ACA data, but for printing and eFiling 1094s and 1095s, you must use Aatrix. You must also use Aatrix to create and submit Forms 1094-B and 1095-B.
Note: Users should be familiar with IRS definitions and requirements for ACA reporting before using Vista to enter ACA data. For more information, visit the Internal Revenue Service website at www.irs.gov and search for "Instructions for Forms 1094-C and 1095-C".
