Form 1095-C Available in GMS

What is IRS Form 1095?

IRS Form 1095 provides information about the health care coverage that you had, or were offered, during the previous year. Much like Form W-2 and Form 1099, which include information about the income you received, these health care forms provide information that you may need when you file your individual income tax return. Like Forms W-2 and 1099, these forms will be provided to the IRS by the entity that provides the form to you.

You do not submit Form 1095 with your tax return; it is, however, recommended that you keep it for your records. Paper copies of IRS Form 1095-C have been mailed to the address on file for all those who were eligible for health insurance from Georgetown University in 2023. You can also find a digital copy of your 1095-C in GMS.
