In January 2016, the state employee health benefits program will issue IRS form 1095-C to eligible participants as proof that coverage was offered or provided in 2015. This form is filed with your 2015 tax return to prove that you had coverage and/or that coverage was available to you during 2015 in accordance with the Affordable Care Act. To make sure the state plan mails your form to the correct address, verify your address in the “Health Benefits Enrollment and Information” module of the state’s Employee Direct system at http://edirect.virginia.gov. If you haven’t used Employee Direct before, see the instructions at http://www.hr.vcu.edu/media/hr/documents/employeeDirectFlyerVCU.pdf.
This important form is not issued by VCU. It is generated by the Virginia Department of Human Resource Management, which operates the state employee health plan. Your VCU W-2 will be available directly from VCU as usual.
