ACA Compliance Reviews

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) added two employer reporting requirements to the Internal Revenue Code. Code § 6056 requires applicable large employers (ALEs) to provide an annual statement to each full-time employee detailing the employer’s health coverage offer. Code § 6055 requires employers that provide minimum essential coverage under a self-funded (self-insured) plan to provide an annual statement to covered persons.

Group health plans and insurers are prohibited from imposing a waiting period exceeding 90 days. “Waiting period” is the time that must pass before coverage for an employee or dependent (who is otherwise eligible to enroll under the plan’s terms) becomes effective. The waiting period begins on the first day that the employee meets the plan’s eligibility definition (e.g., date of hire) and ends on the day before coverage begins.

Cafeteria plans are employer-sponsored benefit programs offering tax advantages under § 125 of the Internal Revenue Code. Plans allow an employee to pay for certain benefits from gross pay, before federal income taxes, Social Security taxes, and, in most instances, state income taxes, are deducted. Employees save by reducing payroll taxes. The employer saves because amounts paid through a cafeteria plan reduce the salary used to calculate employment taxes.
