2019 ACA Reporting Deadlines

November 25, 2019|

The Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) individual mandate for employees was officially repealed on January 1, 2019. However, Congress did not repeal the ACA requirements for employers. Applicable large employers (ALE) with 50 or more employees are still required to provide access to healthcare to employees and meet annual reporting requirements.

To avoid year-end scrambling, employers should begin preparing for ACA reporting now. This includes verifying the organization’s ALE status, confirming employee eligibility and offers of coverage, and verifying ACA codes with the employer’s broker.

Dates for 2019 reporting, submitted in 2020, appear below, along with last year’s deadlines for reference.
