As an employer with 250 – 2,999 employees you’re likely looking for answers/services that 1) Neither your broker nor your current vendor(s) can provide, and 2) You need to get the job done with limited IT resources. Unlike other vendors, we offer a full suite of ACA ancillary services in addition the 1095 form production and 1094 e-filings. We literally do it all – in one place!
Quite honestly, we don’t really know. For starters, your data would have to be reviewed by someone at your company, your broker or your vendor. This person(s) would need to have a general understanding of the ACA and the data that’s needed to accurately produce 1095s. In addition, this same person(s) would need to be able to figure out the correct line 14, 15 and 16 information for each covered individual. Starting to get the picture?
In addition, given the complexity of the ACA and the corresponding reporting requirements, this is a formidable task! For clients that have a dynamic work environment with lots of new hire, termination and job transfer activity, this only complicates things. Hence, the need for a Data Validation & Transformation Engine is even more compelling.
If you’re seeking “four or five star hotel” level concierge service, than you’ve come to the right place. Our experienced account managers have been trained to respond to your needs and will be happy to help. Please note this service is only available for groups with 250 or more recipients.
Our team members understand the “all hands on deck” nature of the M&A world. Many of our consultants worked for leading advisory firms including PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Mercer HR Consulting where they had clients that were buying, merging or selling business units.
To our knowledge we are the only vendor that indemnifies our clients. Clients are indemnified up to the annual amount of their contract value. In order to qualify for indemnification clients must receive a score of 90% or better on their Indemnification request form.
Up to 2 hours of legal support is included in our solution offerings (available for groups with at least 250 employees). If you need additional legal support, additional time can be purchased in blocks of 2 hours. Unlike dealing directly with law firms, our clients can “piggy back” on our contract and avoid 1) the contracting process and 2) having to pay a high retainer.
If you’re worried that your 2015 reporting might trigger an audit or that you may get a letter from the Exchange because one or more of your employees received a subsidy, than we can help you worry less. Why, qualifying clients with at least 250 employees get up to 5 hours of support. Additional support can be purchased in 5 hour blocks.
In 2015 we helped many companies with affiliated relationships determine which entities needed to be included and how the information was to be reported to the IRS. In addition, our ACA legal experts will be happy to discuss this with you and your team.
The short answer is “yes.” These scenarios can be tricky and due to the challenges these life events bring, our solution architects have paid particularly close attention to the nuances of these transactions to make absolutely sure our software handles this.
Right from the start our solution was designed with the intent to handle multiple plans and off-cycle start dates.
Yes. Unlike all the other firms using the “Big Bang” method, clients with at least 1,000 employees can optionally elect this approach. Reviewing Line 14, 15 and 16 information, on monthly basis will ultimately create higher quality output and mitigate the risk of fines and penalties.
The short answer is “yes.” Our developers are happy to help you collect and transform your data and into ACA-ready information as long as each file has a common way to link the files, such as a unique employee ID or SSN.
Our ACA Contact Center serves just that purpose. Your employees can call our toll-free number Monday through Friday and can send us emails 24/7. Our agents generally answer employee inquiries within the same day. In addition, our collection of short and fun ACA videos are available via the AppStore at no additional charge. Our videos are customizable and can also be placed on your employer’s HR Portal.
There are so many reasons why quality assurance should matter to you and your employer. Given the potential for high fines and penalties as well as the ambiguous nature of the reporting requirements, the need for QA is high. Depending upon the quality and completeness of your data as well as the people that are sourcing the data, again the need for QA is high. As a result, we recognize this and have created numerous QA checks in order to protect your P&L and your job.
We have been handling confidential employee data and information since 2001 when our HR Best Practices, our sister company which specializes in claims and eligibility auditing, was founded. To that end, we are HIPAA compliant and sign a HIPAA BAA on behalf of our clients.
