Under IRS Section 6055, every provider of minimum essential coverage is required to report coverage information by filing an information return with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and by furnishing a statement to individuals. This information is used to administer and show compliance with the individual shared responsibility provision in IRS Section 5000A (the Individual Mandate).
Under IRS Section 6056, Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) are required to file information returns with the IRS and provide statements to their full-time employees about the health insurance coverage offered by the employer. This information is used to administer the employer shared responsibility provisions of section 4980H (the Employer Mandate) and as part of the determination of whether an employee is eligible for a premium tax credit.
