Affordable Care Act Financial Exposure

Purpose: Use this report to get an idea of how many employees are paying for insurance and how much they are paying compared to how much your company is spending on insurance. 

The report looks to see if any of the employees qualify for the ACA Break In Service rules and if they do, then the report will not show them even if they meet the average hours requirement.  Break In Service rules are as follows: if the employee has not worked for a 13 week period or more, or the employee has not worked for 4 weeks or more, where that 4 week break is greater than the preceding work period (e.g. 3 week assignment followed by a 4 week break).

You have the option to Pay the tax penalties or Play and offer your employees health insurance.  Report calculates the average weekly gross amount that an employee earns to determine how much they would contribute to their insurance premiums if you were to decide to offer insurance coverage (Play) to them.  Therefore, this report is just an estimation on what your yearly cost would be, based upon the averages for your employees for the given date range you entered.

This report displays a list of employees and how much they are contributing to health care vs. how much the company is responsible for. 

Report also has the ability to be grouped by customer so that you can see an estimation for how much of the cost each one of you customers would be responsible for.
