Required ACA reporting: Don’t be caught off guard February 1

To comply with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), employers with self-funded health coverage, fully insured coverage with insurance carriers, and/or plan sponsors offering multiemployer union healthcare coverage are responsible for providing relevant information to covered individuals participating in the healthcare coverage by Feb. 1, 2016—whether or not the employer is subject to the shared responsibility rules. And if those employers, insurers, and plan sponsors haven’t started to process the requisite documentation, they may have a challenging few months ahead.

Listen to our benefits and tax specialists discuss procedures for determining the correct methodology to ensure proper compliance with these rules. Specifically, they define who is an applicable large employer (ALE) and explain how to report health coverage using 1094 and 1095 series forms.

The program discusses:

  • Rules governing the determination of ALE status and the dynamics of ACA reporting requirements for ALEs vs. non-ALEs
  • Special requirements when the employer participates in multiemployer union healthcare coverage
  • Reporting for employers who self-fund nonunion healthcare coverage vs. those who sponsor fully insured nonunion healthcare coverage
  • Completing required forms, the filing deadlines, and recommended action steps
