W-2s Will Include Information on Cost of Health Coverage

The Affordable Care Act requires that the information be included on the form as information only.

For more information, contact the APS benefits office at (505) 889-4859.

Employees should receive their 2013 Form W-2 by the end of January. To comply with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, also known as Health Reform, the 2013 W-2 will include information on the cost of health coverage in Box 12, using Code DD. The cost of coverage required to be reported on your Form W-2 is for information only. It doesn't need to be reported on your tax return.

The form will reflect the cost of the medical coverage you have chosen:

  • It won't include any cost information where you have waived coverage
  • It will include your contributions and employer contributions towards the cost of medical coverage for yourself and family members calculated each payday during calendar year 2013
  • It will not include dental and vision coverage costs.

The amount reflects the amounts required to be reported pursuant to governmental regulations and guidance. The amount shown in Box 12, Code DD was calculated by adding your contributions and company contributions on a payday by payday basis throughout calendar year 2013. Again, it is the sum of your contributions and the company contributions towards the cost of certain medical coverage.
