Quick Reminders: 1095-C Election, Medicare, and Dependent SSN’s

Dependent Social Security Number Reminder

As part of compliance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the A&M System Benefits Administration Office is required to request Social Security Numbers (SSNs) for covered dependents. This information will remain confidential. If you have dependents covered through your A&M System health plan for whom you have not provided a SSN or if you are unsure as to whether you have previously provided your dependent’s SSN(s), go online to Workday (http://sso.tamus.edu/). After logging into Workday, click on the Benefits Worklet. In the Change column, select ‘Dependents’ and enter any missing SSNs for your covered dependents.

 

Elect to Receive Your 1095-C Electronically Before January

Form 1095-C is a tax form related to your health coverage. The Affordable Care Act requires that you have the ability to elect to receive your tax Form 1095-C electronically. Those who receive their forms electronically in Workday can access their forms much earlier than those waiting to receive paper forms.

Follow these instructions to change your 1095-C election:

  1. Log in to Single-Sign-On (SSO).
  2. Click the Workday link.
  3. Click the Benefits Worklet.
  4. Under the “Change” column, select “Change 1095-C Printing Election.”
  5. Select “Receive electronic copy of 1095-C.”*

*Electronic versions of Form 1095-C require a computer with internet access and Adobe Reader to view and print the document. After you submit your consent to receive the form electronically, it will remain valid for all future tax years or until you change your election.

If you have additional questions, please contact your HR office.

Using DentalQual and Delta Dental’s Provider Search

Searching for quality dental care in your area?

DentalQual is a quality-of-care rating system on Delta Dental’s website. Scores are based on 5 measurement categories using treatment data:

  • commitment to best practices
  • treatment outcomes
  • treatment recommendations
  • patient retention
  • cost-effectiveness

Dentists are compared to their same specialty peers in the same local zip code. The results are updated automatically every month, based on DentalQual’s review of de-identified, aggregate claims.

Visit the deltadentalins.com website to get started.

  1. Click Find a Dentist, enter your Zip code, and select your plan (Delta Dental PPO or DeltaCare USA HMO).
  2. Look for the DentalQual rating at the top of the listing box on the search results page.

Quality scores are not intended to be a guarantee of any dentist’s quality and they are not a substitute for professional advice. At this time, DentalQual scores are only shown on the directory pages for dentists with enough available data to be rated. The A&M System does not verify the quality score ratings.
