ACA Functionality in Employee Extra

The Employee Extra page is used to override ACA data for an employee. For example, if an employee is part of a group that is offered a specific insurance package, but the employee has a circumstance that requires an insurance package different from the group, the Employee Extra page can be used to change the package for just that employee.
