Tuesday, December 13, 2016
2:00 p.m. Eastern time / 11:00 a.m. Pacific time
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's (ACA) reporting requirements are rapidly approaching for employers with group health plans or with 50 or more full time or full time equivalent employees. During 2016, the IRS provided new final instructions for employers who are preparing to file. This webinar will provide an overview of the reporting process, what we learned from the first round of reporting, and how employers should be tracking employees.
This webinar will:
- Review the 2016 final reporting forms and instructions, highlighting new information as compared to the 2015 forms and instructions
- Review the deadlines for employers to submit forms to the IRS and to employees, as well as the extension request process
- Discuss reporting offers of COBRA coverage
- Explain the difference in reporting requirements for small (less than 50 employees) and large (50 or more employees) employers, and self-funded versus fully insured
- Review the changes to line 22 of Form 1094-C
- Discuss the two measurement methods to determine which employees receive a 1095-C
- Provide best practices on the monthly method and the measurement and lookback method
This 60-minute intermediate level webinar will help employers determine the best practices for reporting in 2017.
