14.2.3 (ACA Update)

A large patch was released to improve ACA handling within the Avionté core application. This patch includes changes to the interface in the core application, logic changes to how measurements are calculated and an improved method for tracking a break in service.

 

User Interface Changes

The Employee > ACA Eligibility section in the core application has undergone some visual changes to help display more information that is relevant to an employee's ACA eligibility calculation.

 

  • Current Measurement Information: Information on the current measurement period has been moved up directly beneath where an employees eligibility status is displayed. The information given is:

    • Measurement Type: What type (i.e. Initial, Standard) of measurement period this employee is in.

    • Measurement Start Date: When the current measurement period began.

    • Hours Calculated to date: How many ACA hours have been calculated as of the previous day.

  • Completed Employee Eligibility Measurements: In the grid containing previous measurement periods, two new columns have been added, Active Measurement and Reason for Deactivation. If this employee is undergoing a break in employment, the system will deactivate a measurement period and insert a reason (e.g. Pay gap starting '1/1/2016'). An employee cannot be found eligible for these periods.

 

Combine Employee Records by SSN

If the same employee has a different employee record per supplier, it is now possible to combine their hours worked under these suppliers to get a more accurate representation of that employee's ACA eligibility.

  • New Config Option: The Config Option GroupEmployeeRecordsBySSN has been added. When set to true, employee records which contain the same SSN will have their hours combined only when they belong to suppliers with the same ACA_SupplierGroupingNumber (see below). When set to False, each employee id will be considered to represent a unique supplier for ACA eligibility calculations.
    Note: If an employer is positive that they will only ever use one employee record per employee this can stay at the defaulted value of False.

  • New Supplier Property: The Supplier Property ACA_SupplierGroupingNumber has been added. This property will accept numerical values and can be used to restrict which suppliers will have their employee records ACA eligible hours pooled.
    Note: Only suppliers with the same entered number in the supplier property will have their employee records considered for pooling.

 

Example

The following records exists:

  • Employee ID 123, name John Doe, SSN 123-456-7890, supplier ABC who has worked 100 hours this measurement period

  • Employee ID 456, name John Doe, SSN 123-456-7890, supplier XYZ who has worked 50 hours this measurement period

 

If the ACA_SupplierGroupingNumber properties for supplier ABC and for supplier XYZ are both set to their default of "1", then this measurement period will show 150 hours for employeeID 123 and 150 hours for employeeID 456. However, if the ACA_SupplierGroupingNumber property for supplier ABC is set to its default of "1" for supplier ABC and the property is changed to "2" for supplier XYZ, then this measurement period will show 100 hours for employeeID 123 and 50 hours for employeeID 456.    

 

Units to Hours Multiplier The transaction type property Units to Hours Multiplier allows for the conversion of non-standard hours into hours which can be applied towards ACA eligibility.

 

  • Can be set to decimal or whole integers (Default =1).

  • Will only be applied to time entry transactions where the transaction type property of IncludeInACAHours has the value of True.

 

Example 1

John is a salaried employee. He works for 52 weeks, and each week his time is entered as 1 pay unit of Salary in Time Entry. The Salary Transaction Type has its transaction type property IncludeInACAHours set to True and its transaction type property UnitsToHoursMultiplier set to 40. When John's standard measurement is complete, we will multiply each of his Salary pay units by 40, so his hours worked be logged as (1 * 52 * 40 = 2,080).  

 

Example 2

Bill is a truck driver who is paid by the mile. He works for 52 weeks, and each week his time is entered as 2400 pay units of Mileage in Time Entry. The Mileage Transaction Type has its transaction type property IncludeInACAHours set to True and its transaction type property UnitsToHoursMultiplier set to 0.0167, assuming that every 60 miles driven is an hour worked. When John's standard measurement is complete, we will multiply each of his Salary pay units by 40, so his hours worked be logged as (2400 * 52 * 0.0167 = 2,084).    

 

Effective Insurance Date

 

Each employee will now have a date type called Effective Insurance Date. This date is intended to represent the day that ACA eligible employees must have been offered insurance coverage. It will only show the first time an employee was eligible for benefits, and will not be usable when calculating a "break in service". This date type will be automatically updated and populated for the following employee types:

 

  • Non-variable full-time employees who did not have this date set during assignment creation.

  • When a variable-time employee has completed an initial measurement period and has been found to be eligible for ACA benefits.

  • When a variable-time employee has completed a standard measurement and has been found to be eligible for ACA benefits

  • When any employee is found who has an effective insurance date but is marked as ineligible for ACA benefits, that employee's effective insurance date will be removed.
    Note: As required by law, if the calculated effective insurance date is after the last day of the 13th month after the employee was hired, then the admin period will be abbreviated and the employee's effective insurance date will be set to the last day of his 13th month of employment.    

 

Modified Stability Start Day

 

In order to reduce the number of Effective Insurance Dates in the system, the config option ModifiedStabilityStartDay has been added to allow users to adjust start dates be increasing or shortening the allowed admin period. When this config option is set to a non-zero integer from -31 to 31 it will make the effective insurance date to fall on that day of the month either following or preceding the standard set admin period. Note: If this value will adjust an admin period beyond either 0 or 90 days the system will increase or decrease the effective insurance date in monthly increments until the issue is resolved.  

 

Example 1:ModifiedStabilityStartDate = 0

 

ModifiedStabilityStartDay is set to the value "0", and the staffing company is using 30-day admin periods. John is manually marked as eligible on 1/20/2015. His Effective Insurance Date is 1/20/2015 + an admin period = 2/20/15. Note: With this setting, Effective Insurance dates could occur on any day of the month.  

 

Example 2: ModifiedStabilityStartDate is Positive

 

At the same staffing company, ModifiedStabilityStartDay is set to the value "15". John is again manually marked as eligible on 1/20/2015. His Effective Insurance Date would normally be 1/20/2015 + an admin period = 2/20/15, but due to the value of ModifiedStabilityStartDay, we extend the admin period and move his effective insurance date forward to 3/15/15.

 

Note: With this setting, Effective insurance dates will always occur on the 15th of the month.  

 

Example 3: ModifiedStabilityStartDate is Negative

 

At the same staffing company, ModifiedStabilityStartDay is set to the value "-15". John is again manually marked as eligible on 1/20/2015. His Effective Insurance Date would normally be 1/20/2015 + an admin period = 2/20/15, but due to the value of ModifiedStabilityStartDay, we shorten the admin period and move his effective insurance date backward to 2/15/15.

Note: With this setting, Effective insurance dates will always occur on the 15th of the month.  

 

Stability Period

 

The new config option StabilityPeriod has been added which accepts any integer from 1 to 12. This represents the time in months that an employer cannot legally revoke healthcare once offered. This value will appended to any employee following their Effective Insurance Date and if they are found to be ACA eligible.

 

Tech Notes

 

  • This config option affects how dates are inserted into the ACAStabilityEndDate column of the Employee table.

  • When an employee is found to be eligible for any reason, his stability end date will be updated to {(calculated Effective Insurance Date) + (StabilityPeriod)}.

  • Unlike the Effective Insurance Date, the ACAStabilityEndDate column is updated even if the calculated Effective Insurance Date is after the employee's current Effective Insurance Date value.

 

Pre-2015 ACA Measurements Running the ACA calculation for any date prior to 1/1/2015 will cause it to run with new logic. This new logic will use normally calculated stability and admin periods. However, the effective insurance date is locked to 1/1/2015.

 

Tech Notes

 

If the employee is found to be eligible, the procedure will do the following:

  • Update his ACA eligibility to Yes

  • Insert or update the Effective Insurance Date in his dates section to {1/1/2015 + an admin period}

  • Update his stability period end date to {1/1/2015 + an admin period + a stability period}

 

Break in Service

As required by the ACA, any employee who has a break in service will be evaluated for ACA eligibility as if they are new hire on their return. Within Avionté this is calculated in two ways:

  • It has been more than 91 days between his previous transaction week worked and the current date

  • It has been more than 28 days between his previous transaction week worked and the current date, and he has been absent for longer than he had previously been on assignment.

 

When an employee has been found that meets these conditions, Avionté will:

  • Update the employee's ACA eligibility to "Undetermined".

  • Remove the employee's ACA Stability End Date

  • Inactivate any of the employee's active ACA measurements. All inactivated measurements will be marked with a note as to why they were deactivated in this format: Transaction gap: week worked {mm/dd/yy} to {mm/dd/yy}"

  • Insert an inactive partial measurement for the period the employee was in when the break occurred.

  • Be calculated as a new hire the next time they are placed on assignment.

 

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that was causing errors when using measurement periods other than 12 months.

  • Improved the processing speed

  • Added additional parameters @EmployeeGUID, @SSN, and @ACASupplierGroupingNumber to emp_ProcessAcaEligibility. These can be used to run measurements for a single employee, or a single SSN/ACASupplierGroupingNumber combination.
