The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as the health care law, was created to expand access to coverage, control health care costs, and improve health care quality and care coordination. Starting in 2014, the ACA individual mandate requires each individual, including children, to have qualifying health insurance coverage (known as minimum essential coverage) for each month.  An individual who does not have minimum essential coverage must make a payment (penalty) when filing his or her federal income tax return or otherwise qualify for an exemption. 

This year, for the first time ever and in compliance with this federal mandate, employers are required to report employees’ health insurance coverage information to the IRS and to the employee based on the 2015 calendar/tax year.

The Personnel Cabinet intends to send these forms to state agency employees by early February 2016. Other employers may have different delivery timeframes and deadlines.

NOTE: Retiree and COBRA Subscribers- the Kentucky Employees’ Health Plan (KEHP) will provide these forms to you. For more information, please review the FAQs, compiled specifically for you.
