Affordable Care Act Implications: Questions and Answers

IRS 1095-C Forms Sent to Employees

All full-time (30 hours/week) ACC employees, regardless of whether or not they are enrolled in health coverage, will receive an IRS Form 1095-C from ACC in the U.S. mail during the first week of February 2017.    Some employees may have signed up to receive an electronic version of the IRS Form 1095-C in the ACC Self-Service portal.  The 2016 1095-C form is posted in the Self-Service portal, but due to the short timetable of this option being placed on the portal, a form is also being mailed.  For additional information about this form, click here.

Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) establishes coverage and affordability standards for health coverage provided by large employers like Austin Community College.  According to the ACA, full-time employees (those averaging at least 30 hours worked per week) are eligible for and must be offered group health coverage. This includes full-time faculty, staff, part-time employees, hourly and adjunct faculty, or any combination of these positions that results in a weekly average of 30 or more hours worked during the year.     

If you have questions about the ACA, contact the HR Benefits Office at: hrbenefits.austincc.edu or call Alisol Martinez at 512-223-7800 or Steve Hassel at 512-223-7617.

IRS Form 1095-C Information 

ACC employees who averaged at least 30 or more hours per week during the year, will receive an IRS Form 1095-C in January each year.  The ACA requires all large employers to provide this document to their full-time employees, beginning with 2015.  Employees who did not meet the 30 hours per week average will not receive this form.  Detailed information about the form, what information it provides and how it is used are included in the Frequently Asked Questions below.
