Employers with 50 or more full-time employees, including full-time equivalent employees, use transmittal Form 1094-C and information return Form 1095-C to report the information required under the Affordable Care Act about offers of health coverage and enrollment in health coverage for their employees. In addition to reporting the coverage that they offer, applicable large employers who sponsor self-insured group health plans will use Forms 1094-C and 1095-C to report information about the coverage they provide to the covered individuals.
