Q: Will the ACA Management Tool® help me determine if I am an Applicable Large Employer?
A: Yes – after integrating your employee information in the ACA Management Tool®, you can quickly and easily determine if Applicable Large Employer status applies. Additionally, you can immediately determine which employees qualify for coverage, track the employees that are approaching the threshold, and generate the necessary IRS forms for reporting.
Q: Can your solution handle both measurement methods outlined in the Affordable Care Act regulation?
A: Yes. The ACA Management Tool® allows an employer to track employees using either the Lookback Measurement Method or the Monthly Measurement Method. The system documents all status changes at the employee level, creating an audit trail. The employer dashboard provides insight into employees that are near the threshold, at the threshold, or over the threshold of eligibility. The dashboard also alerts the employer to any upcoming events that are on the 30 day horizon (i.e. Measurement Period Ending, Administrative Period Beginning, IRS filing deadlines, etc.)
