For 2020, the Plan Start month is a required field. Previously, it was optional. Here's the text from the IRS instructions:

Plan Start Month. This box is required for the 2020 Form 1095-C and the ALE Member may not leave it blank. To complete the box, enter the two-digit number (01 through 12) indicating the calendar month during which the plan year begins of the health plan in which the employee is offered coverage (or would be offered coverage if the employee were eligible to participate in the plan). If more than one plan year could apply (for instance, if the ALE Member changes the plan year during the year), enter the earliest applicable month. If there is no health plan under which coverage is offered to the employee, enter ’00’.
