1095 Healthcare reporting forms for 2021

As in past years, due to requirements under the Affordable Care Act you may have received a form recently regarding the health coverage you had or were offered in 2021. The most common forms are the 1095 series forms. These forms include information about coverage offered to you and any covered dependents, and must be sent to eligible individuals regardless as to whether coverage was elected or waived.

For benefits eligible Illinois Tech faculty and staff: 1095-Cs for those eligible for coverage under Illinois Tech’s employer-sponsored coverage (Blue Cross Blue Shield) were mailed in early February, well in advance of the IRS’ March 2 postmark deadline.

For Illinois Tech students: 1095-B forms for those eligible for coverage under the Aetna student health plan are available from the health plan directly. This form from University Health Plans has a link to the 1095 request form.

As has been the case in prior years, these forms do not need to be filed with your taxes.  If your tax professional requires you to provide a copy and you have not received your copy, employees should contact Viktoria Rill at x73353 or vrill@iit.edu, and students should contact Aetna.
