ACA Guidance

Whether you have a client-specific, scenario-based Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Department of Labor (DOL) inquiry, you can count on us to deliver the answers, resources, and support you and your clients want.

  • ERISA

    We can simplify your clients’ administration, ensure their program can pass the ERISA coverage test, and protect benefits with a Wrap Plan bundling health and welfare.

  • Premium Only Plan (POP)

    A POP offers savings to clients and employees, because of reduced payroll taxes and the ability to deduct insurance premiums or HSA contributions on a pre-tax basis.

  • COBRA

    Employer compliance with COBRA is mandatory and non-compliance fees can be substantial. We offer your eligible groups free COBRA administration, helping them save money and avoid fines.

  • HR Support

    Offer your clients access to an online, centralized benefits and Human Resources (HR) management tool from Ease, or our no-cost HRWow benefits administration tool from Mammoth HR.

  • ACA IRS Reporting

    Help your clients with annual IRS reporting and related services like mandated employer letters, ERISA Wrap documents, Form 5500 preparation and filing, and more.

  • ACA Calculators

    We have calculators designed to help you determine whether your clients are subject to ACA “play or pay” mandates, forecast potential penalties, and more.
