Void or Corrected: Which Box Should You Check on Form 1095-C?

If you look at the top of Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, you’ll see two boxes, one labelled VOID, one CORRECTED. If you find yourself amending an ACA return you’ve already submitted to the IRS, you may end up doing more than just looking at the boxes. The question we’re here to answer today is which do you use for what situation?

The Void Box
This one’s pretty straightforward. If you’ve filed a Form 1095-C for an employee in error or need to just void completely a filed Form 1095-C for any other reason, you’ll check this box on a new Form 1095-C. Fill out the same information as is on the 1095-C you’ve already filed and are voiding so the IRS knows to which form in your original return you’re referring.

The Corrected Box
This box you may check for any number of reasons, the main one being that you need to make a correction on a Form 1095-C you’ve already filed. You’ll enter an X in the “Corrected” box on a new 1095-C form for any form you’ve already filed that had incorrect
  • Employer/employee name,
  • SSN or EIN,
  • Offer of Coverage,
  • Premium Amount,
  • Safe Harbor or other relief codes,
  • Covered Individuals’ information.
You’ll need to furnish a corrected copy to the recipient of the coverage (and the original Form 1095-C) in addition to the one you send to the IRS.
