Don't get frustrated. Get help.

Understanding your obligations with the Affordable Care Act is a daunting task. Are you required to offer your employees health insurance? How robust does this insurance need to be? How do you do this? And what forms do you need to complete and keep on file? (Spoiler alert: It’s a LOT.)

It can get overwhelming. But that doesn’t have to be the case with James Moore on your side.

Are your employees covered? (Better yet… are you?)

Four accountants having a team meeting around a conference room table.

If you’re an employer with 50 or more full-time workers, the ACA requires that you provide those workers adequate health insurance. But what does “adequate” mean—or “full-time,” for that matter? These and countless other details must be considered when it comes to the Affordable Care Act.

The fact is, ACA compliance requires a lot of work:

  • Tracking hours of service
  • Determining whether you’re a large employer subject to the law
  • Identifying which full-time employees can trigger a penalty
  • Understanding the consequences of not offering basic coverage to full-time employees
  • Considering whether to offer affordable, minimum value coverage
  • Determine whether to “pay or play”
  • Reporting required information to the IRS

Guessing about what you need to do (or how to do it) won’t really cut it—because the penalties for noncompliance can put your company out of business.

We can help.

Our ACA compliance services are provided by a multi-disciplinary team, bringing a wide range of expertise to your engagement. We know exactly what to look for to avoid the dire consequences of missteps. No red flag will go unspotted, and no steps will be missed.

That list we mentioned above, with all those tasks? Leave that work to us. We’ll also review multiple scenarios for employer-provided benefits to find one that works best for your company.
