Support for ICHRA Codes

The IRS requires the reporting of Individual Coverage Health Reimbursement Arrangements (ICHRA’s) on Form 1095C.  This change to the form corresponds to the change to allow ICHRA’s to be treated as minimum essential coverage for ACA Employer Mandate purposes. 

These codes may be imported and will be included on reports and exports

The 1095-C released by the IRS includes new codes related to ICHRAs:

  • Individual coverage health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) offered to you only with affordability determined by using employee’s primary residence location ZIP Code.
