The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's (ACA) reporting for employers with 50 or more full time or full time equivalent employees in early 2016 is onthe horizon. For some employers, the reporting requirements and process is relatively straightforward, but some industries and employee groups are more difficult to report on. This webinar will help provide guidance for employers facing difficult reporting situations.
This webinar will:
Explain the difference in reporting requirements for small (less than 50) and large (50 or more) employers, and self-funded versus fully insured
Provide best practices on reporting when an employer moves between self-funded and fully insured or vice versa
Provide best practices for employers with union employees
Discuss how to report coverage that is offered to employees who work less than 30 hours a week
Provide a basic overview of the IRS' "Affordable Care Act Information Returns" process for employers who wish to or must file electronically and who are not utilizing a third party vendor
Provide information on how to handle employers who decline coverage or move in and out of eligibility
This 90-minute intermediate to expert level webinar will help employers determine the best practices for reporting in difficult situations or circumstances.
