ACA alters the relationship between employers and their employees’ dependents.

Under ACA, dependents now are covered to age 26 – even those no longer living with your employee. The two new ACA taxes employers must pay are assessed not just on counts of employees but employees plus their dependents. ACA requires that employers must now report to the IRS detailed information on dependents, including SSN.

Plan administrators take no responsibility for keeping dependent facts current or correct. That is why we routinely see plans with 4%-12% ineligible dependents and employers struggling to keep up with an ever changing population of dependents that, unlike employees, they never see.

Employers must deal with this changing reality of dependent coverage. This webinar explores what employers need to do and how to do it. In keeping with the theme of our ACA series, we also show how steps needed to comply with ACA can also support savings and benefits for the self-funded plan.
