1095-C Part II Plan Start Month

  • 1.  1095-C Part II Plan Start Month

    Posted 12 days ago
    Our plan year for our self-insured health plan begins October each  year.  Our 1095-C is reporting the plan start month as "01".  Where do you change this field in Dynamics?  This is the first required year for this field.

    Hopefully, a simple answer.

    Hi Pamela,

    I have this noted in my ACA blog from this year about the new fields, we did not make them all editable.

    If they had coverage last year for those employees would that not be 01 anyway?  If it was a new employee for the months prior to October would you have a 1H no offer of coverage, then something in October to start it, then the system will calculate it at month 10.

    I saw the note in the Blog, but I can't see where to put the month. I have a client who needs to enter it, but where in GP do you even put it? The instruction says enter the 2 digit code for the month in the box, but where is the box??

    I can't get anything to come out in my test company either.

    GP is auto calculating the "start month". If the employee begins mid year for example and is covered from April to Dec the plan start month shows as 04. See screenshot below 1095-C from GP TWO co.
    If they are a full year covered employee for 12 months the start month shows as 01. This is most common.
    If they are covered by two plans for the full year 10/2019 and then 10/2020 the start month shows also as 01.
    Here are the IRS instructions for multiple plan coverage. The earliest applicable month would be 01 for a 12month covered employee with two plans..

    "Plan Start Month. This box is required for the 2020 Form
    1095–C and the ALE Member may not leave it blank. To
    complete the box, enter the two-digit number (01 through 12)
    indicating the calendar month during which the plan year begins
    of the health plan in which the employee is offered coverage (or
    would be offered coverage if the employee were eligible to
    participate in the plan). If more than one plan year could apply
    (for instance, if the ALE Member changes the plan year during
    the year), enter the earliest applicable month. If there is no
    health plan under which coverage is offered to the employee,
    enter "00."
