Export - ESC ICHRA

The ICHRA plan requires a weekly eligibility file in order to be implemented successfully. The ACA requires an offer of insurance to be made within 30 days from when an employee is considered full time.

The purpose of this file is to report the data so that ESC's system will trigger an eligibility letter that can be mailed out timely keeping them in compliance.

  • Supplier [Employee Supplier]
  • As of Date [Week worked]
  • Term Look Back period
  • Ignore Missing DOB Error - While ignoring errors is not recommended, this export performs an error check on missing DOB, which can be ignored using this parameter.
  • Ignore All Errors - While ignoring errors is not recommended, this export performs an error check on missing SSN, Invalid Home Phone, Invalid Work Phone, Invalid Email, Missing Address, Missing Hire Date, Missing Scheduled Pay & Term Reason when an employee is terminated.
