When you file your 2015 tax return, you will be asked if you are enrolled in minimum essential coverage (“MEC”) to avoid a tax penalty. If you were a benefits-eligible employee in 2015 and LSU offered you and your spouse and dependents (if applicable) MEC for one or more months during the year, you will receive Form 1095-C that contains detailed information regarding the coverage LSU made available to you.
Please note that:
The detailed information from the official forms will allow you to determine if you were entitled to a premium subsidy from the governmental Marketplace. For additional assistance on premium subsidies, you should consult a tax advisor or contact a navigator in your state at www.heathcare.gov.
LSU has prepared frequently asked questions for you with general information.
If you have any questions or need additional information regarding your LSU sponsored health coverage, please contact the customer service phone number on your health insurance card.
