ACA Reporting — Are You Prepared?

Under the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), there are a whole new set of tax reporting obligations for health insurers and large employers. In fact, this is the largest tax reporting obligation expansion since the W2.

Failing to track and report this sensitive data on time and accurately, to recipients and the IRS, can result in unhappy members, confused employees, and stiff penalties that can quickly add up as well as create other serious problems down the road. Building a secure solution in-house to achieve ACA compliance is a huge undertaking and requires a ton of internal resources. The Sovos ACA solution accurately, securely, and efficiently manages the entire ACA reporting process.

One great feature of Sovos ACA is that it requires no installation as a scalable SaaS technology. But, the best part about Sovos ACA? It’s extremely user-friendly while it helps you easily generate the proper 1095 Forms to recipients and transmit them to the IRS. Also important, Sovos ACA is built to adapt to any last minute regulatory updates or additions—which are monitored by our extensive Compliance Research Team—and quickly updated in the tool so your business remains compliant.

“What we liked about Sovos is that you were service-oriented, we got timely responses, and your product’s ease of use. More importantly, after asking our programmer about building a solution internally, we discovered that the Sovos ACA solution is a bargain comparatively.”

For Large Employers with 50+ FTE Employers

ACA legislation requires large employers (generally companies with 50+ FTE equivalent employees) to offer health insurance for qualifying full time equivalent employees, provide proof of coverage for employees to include with their individual tax returns, and report this information to the IRS.

Sovos ACA is designed to be user-friendly for anyone who may be tasked with compiling and reporting this data, from Finance and Accounting to your HR/Benefits department. Each step is easy and helps efficiently compile the data so you can populate the required forms for recipients and complete the necessary, secure transmittal to the IRS.

For Health Insurers

Also required by ACA, health plan providers must provide information to the IRS on the minimum essential coverage they offer. Like tax reporting requirements in the financial services industry, this requires aggregating vast amounts of complex data.

We help health insurers efficiently compile and report the data needed to provide their direct insured members accurate coverage information for their eligible employee and dependent recipients of large employers and any other covered populations.
