Employees receiving a Form W-2 Wage and Tax Statement from Boise State for 2012 will notice an additional item in box 12 of their form. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), also known as the health care reform legislation, now requires that employers report information on the cost of their employer-sponsored group health plan coverage on the Form W-2. This reporting is informational, and has no tax impact to the employee. Only those employees who were enrolled in the Boise State health coverage through the State of Idaho during any months of the calendar year 2012 will have amounts displaying on their Form W-2. The cost reflected in box 12 is the total premium cost of coverage for the plan in which each individual employee and their dependents were enrolled during the year.
Questions regarding Form W-2 PPACA information should be directed to the Benefits department at Benefits@Boisestate.edu. For all other W-2 questions, please contact Regan Walker in Payroll at x63435, or firstname.lastname@example.org .
