Health Care Reform Reporting Requirements – A 2019 Refresher
- Health Care Reform Reporting Requirements – A 2019 Refresher
December 5, 2019
8:30 am - 12:00 pm
The IRS has been increasingly aggressive in enforcing the health care reporting requirements (i.e., Forms 1094 and 1095). This is true both for employers that failed to file altogether as well as employers that filled out the forms in a manner (deliberately or accidentally) that trigger “shared responsibility” penalties. The IRS started very slowly but it now has revved up its engine and has been imposing substantial penalties in connection with the 2015-2017 calendar years. It is also beginning to impose penalties for late filings. Do NOT take this filing obligation for granted.
Although, knock on wood, we have had great success getting the IRS to back down from these penalties so far, no employer wants to be in the IRS’s cross-hairs. We will thus be offering a refresher course on how to properly fill out these forms in order to avoid costly IRS penalties.
Fortunately, very little has changed in the IRS’s 1094/1095 health care reporting requirements for 2019. So if you are confident in your ability to correctly complete and file your 1094/1095 forms, that’s terrific and we’re here to help if specific questions arise.
But, if you are an employer that is new to the health care reporting requirements, have an HR staff that is not entirely familiar with these complex rules, or simply feel you would benefit from a refresher course, we will be holding another participatory seminar on Thursday, December 5, from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Who should attend?
Remember that all employers that are large enough to be an “applicable large employer” are subject to the reporting requirements, regardless of whether they offer health care coverage to their employees. Employers that sponsor self-funded medical plans are also subject to these rules, even if they are too small to be an “applicable large employer.” If you fall into this category and you are new to the health care reporting requirements, have an HR staff that is not entirely familiar with these complex rules, or simply feel you would benefit from a refresher course, this seminar may be for you.
What Is the cost to attend?
$115 per attendee, including light refreshments and workshop materials.
We have applied for HRCI credit and hope to have it soon. Cancellations will be accepted up to two days prior to the event. You can transfer your registration at any time. If you have questions, please contact Robyn Zarich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
