If you were eligible for WSU health benefits in 2017, you will be provided with a 1095 Form no later than March 2, 2018. The 1095 Form reports information about your health care coverage as required by the Affordable Care Act. This form is not needed to file your taxes, but you should keep it with your 2017 tax documentation. It does not replace your W-2.
While the University will mail out your W-2 form in January, the 1095 forms will be mailed directly by either the Health Care Authority (HCA) or your insurance provider, and there may be situations where you receive one from multiple sources. These will be mailed to your home address no later than March 2, 2018. Please make sure that your address is up to date in myWSU.
The 1095 Forms will be sent to every individual who was eligible for health benefits in 2017, including faculty, staff, and benefit-eligible retirees. It will also be sent to all employees who worked at least 130+ in any month in 2017 regardless of benefit eligibility. Covered dependents will not receive their own 1095 Form.
