ACA… What’s that?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) as its name implies, provides “affordable” health insurance coverage for all United States citizens regardless of preexisting conditions. The aim of this law is to reduce the costs associated to healthcare within the United States, by instituting mandates, subsidies, and insurance exchanges.

How the ACA could affect your  business?

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act better known as the The Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare for short is a health care reform law which was proposed by the Obama administration in 2009 and signed into law as of March 23, 2010. The law went into effect as of January 1, 2015 with compliance expected by those affected within 2016.

Companies need to be ready to meet this compliance deadline efficiently as miscalculations to the number of your eligible “variable hour” employees could end up costing your company thousands of dollars. Businesses defined as being applicable large employers (ALE’s), are those businesses with 50 or more full time equivalent (FTE) employees. ALE’s entering 2016 could face fines of $40,000 or more.
