Don’t Forget About State Requirements When Filing ACA Forms This Year

As we begin the fifth year of ACA reporting, businesses and providers are finally becoming familiar with the requirements of filing 1095 forms to the IRS and sending copies to recipients. Enter a new wrinkle: state filing requirements.

So far, four “states” have passed individual health coverage mandate laws. Two of those (New Jersey and Washington D.C.) are mandating ACA filing for the 2019 calendar year, and California will require filing beginning in 2021 for the 2020 calendar year. Rhode Island’s mandate goes into effect for the 2020 calendar year as well, but they have not yet announced the filing requirements. Other states are also considering implementing an individual mandate relating to health coverage.

“It’s important for businesses and providers with ANY recipient in one of these states to make sure they comply with new state filing requirements,” said Janice Krueger, Greatland’s subject matter expert.
