On January 1, 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) required that nearly everyone have medical coverage, or pay a penalty. Your Veolia-sponsored medical coverage meets your requirement to have affordable medical coverage. This means that if you enroll in one of our medical plan options, you’ll meet the requirement for having health coverage and won’t have to pay a penalty. Plus, you don’t have to enroll in an option available in the public health insurance marketplace (also called “health insurance exchanges”). For more information regarding the Affordable Care Act, www.healthcare.gov.
Watch for your IRS Form 1095-C to arrive via U.S. Mail. If any questions arise on the form you receive, contact Veolia Benefits Department at email@example.com.
As required by the IRS, your Form 1095-C will be postmarked by the required date in March of each year to be used in filing your federal income tax return. You’ll receive your 1095-C in the mail at home. Watch for it in an envelope marked as a tax document. This form provides information about your (and covered dependents, if applicable) coverage under a Veolia medical plan that met the minimum essential health coverage requirement. The form will show for each month of the year your coverage (and covered dependents as applicable) under a Veolia medical plan. Keep this form with your tax information should you need to provide it to the IRS during an audit. Veolia is also required to provide the 1095-C information to the IRS.
