UC SHIP - Student Health Insurance Plan
We have been advised of new federal reporting requirements under Internal Revenue Code, Sections 6055 and 6056, regarding your student health care plan.
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) legislation, most Americans, including most college and university students, must be covered under a health care plan that qualifies as Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) or be subject to tax penalties.
Student health care plans are required to report to the IRS the name, address, and Social Security Number (SSN) of plan members, including covered students and dependents, to verify coverage during the calendar year.
