For 2020, the Plan Start month on the 1095-C 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’.


1. From Menu G08AIR build the 2020 ACA file.
2. From the same menu, select the 1095-C Offer and Coverage Inq (P08119) and notice the Plan start month is blank.
3. Submit the 1094-C build.  Locate the xml file and the plan start month is blank.  
4. 2020 and forward, blank is not a valid value.
