Each year, EP issues 1095-C Forms for Production Worker Employees (PWEs). The 1095-C provides workers and the IRS with information on the employer-sponsored health insurance that was offered (if applicable) during the previous calendar year.

1095-C Forms are generally sent to full-time employees and/or those workers who were offered health insurance by their employer or through  their union.

 

FAQs

 

When will I receive my 1095-C Form?

All forms will be mailed no later than March 2. We are unable to provide a specific mailing date for your particular form.

 

Do I need my 1095-C Form to file my taxes?

No. 1095-C forms are not attached to tax returns. You can file a tax return even if you have not received a 1095-C form.

 

Some of the information on my form is wrong. Who can help me?

First, you need to determine whether EP issued the 1095-C Form.

Review Part 1, Item 10 of the Form. Forms issued by EP will list either (818) 955-6022 or (800) 417-0037 in this box. If there is a different phone number listed, EP did not distribute the form and we can provide no additional assistance.

    Phone: 818-955-6022
  • If the form was not issued by EP, please direct your inquiry to the phone number listed in Part 1, Item 10 of the Form.

  • To provide the IRS with information on whether the employer (usually the Production Company) is in compliance with Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) regulations.
  • To provide the IRS with information on whether the individual maintained adequate health insurance as required by the ACA.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has posted a set of questions and answers that provide information about Forms 1095-B and 1095-C. The questions and answers explain who should expect to receive the forms, how they can be used, and how to file a tax return with or without the forms.

Entertainment Partners offers ACA compliance solutions to various production companies and studios in the entertainment industry. This includes preparing and filing the required reports with the IRS. You may receive a copy of Form 1095-C from EP that will be filed with the IRS on behalf of the production company you worked for during the previous calendar year. Please note that not all production companies have contracted with EP for fulfillment of this reporting obligation.

Can you get more than one Form 1095-C?

If you worked for more than one production company last year, you will receive a Form 1095-C from each production company. For example, if you changed jobs and were offered insurance coverage by multiple production companies, you will receive a Form 1095-C from each production company.

What is the difference between a 1095-A, 1095-B, and 1095-C?

The forms are similar. The main difference is (1) who sends the form to you and (2) the purpose of the form.

Your employer is responsible for providing you a Form 1095-C. This form indicates on a monthly basis whether you had access to employer subsidized insurance and whether you enrolled in that insurance.

If you enrolled in insurance, the entity through which you obtained coverage (such as the insurancecarrier) is responsible for sending a Form 1095:

– You may receive a Form 1095-A if you were enrolled in insurance coverage through a federal or state marketplace (also called an exchange).

– You may receive a Form 1095-B if you were enrolled in insurance coverage obtained through an employer-sponsored plan or if you obtained an individual policy.
