Affordable Care Act (ACA) Overview

Basic information on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA):

  • If you plan on purchasing healthcare coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace, you will not be eligible for a premium tax credit because you were offered coverage through the University that meets the minimum essential coverage requirement under ACA.
  • You may receive multiple Forms 1095-C if you had multiple employers during the year. In this situation, each Form 1095-C will have information only about the health insurance coverage offered to you by the employer identified on the form.
  • Your dependents who file separately from you may need a copy of the Form 1095-C to complete their 2018 tax return.
