ADP Offers ACA Compliance Support Solution

October 2, 2014 ( – A new health benefits compliance solution from ADP helps employers navigate requirements included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

ADP Health Compliance is designed to help large employers manage the business challenges associated with the ACA. ADP says it is adding ADP Health Compliance—targeted at large enterprises with at least 1,000 employees in the United States—to its existing portfolio of compliance solutions designed to help employers quickly adapt to ACA compliance requirements and avoid potentially devastating financial penalties.

“ACA compliance is one of the most critical business challenges facing employers today, yet many are unclear on how to manage it,” Vic Saliterman, senior vice president for ADP, says. “To effectively comply, large employers need to integrate employee data from the full spectrum of workforce management systems, including HR, benefits, time, leaves of absence, payroll and i9s.”

ADP Health Compliance combines software as a service with managed services staffed by ACA experts who can help manage all of the health care reform law’s regulatory requirements. Support is provided by the ADP Health Compliance solution in the following areas:

  • Eligibility – Gives employers tools they need to determine employee benefit eligibility, including assessments of ACA full-time/part-time status thresholds and whether or not health benefits coverage has been offered to a minimum of 70% of the workforce in 2015 and 95% in subsequent plan years.
  • Affordability – Calculates whether health benefits coverage offerings exceed the affordability threshold and allows the flexibility to select among applicable safe harbor tests.
  • Regulatory Management – ADP’s ACA experts provide notices of coverage, develop annual health care reports, manage exchange notices and reconcile ACA employer penalties. ADP says this fully outsourced service reduces administrative burdens for employers by supporting and streamlining all of the labor-intensive interactions between employers, employees and various government agencies.

The firm says the solution features rich analytics that can help empower employers to make smart, forward-looking workforce management decisions. The solution’s user dashboards feature the new ADP Visual Design Language (VDL) for a consumer-friendly user experience. The solution helps professionals who are not ACA experts pinpoint areas of potential noncompliance at the individual employee level. These dashboards offer business leaders actionable, real-time workforce management strategies to help facilitate compliance.
