ACA Compliance Tools

Tools to assist/ensure ACA compliance are now integral to many HR Technology and Benefit Administration platforms, or available as stand-alone products.


We offer a comprehensive understanding of the market and possess deep knowledge of HR and benefits technology and outsourcing marketplace solutions.

ACA Compliance Tools

Complying with the Affordable Care Act may be the biggest driver for employers to look for new and better technologies to manage employee health and welfare benefits. Employers with seasonal and/or part-time employees face the greatest challenge when it comes to ACA compliance given the complexities of the law pertaining to the calculation of “full time equivalent employees.” The market has responded with new tools to help employers ensure compliance, but it’s not a one-time effort due to anticipated ongoing changes to the law. Sufficient resources are required to successfully track and update systems to ensure employers remain compliant.

Gruppo Marcucci looks at a platform’s ability to successfully track the cost of benefit plans for W2 reporting; distribution of SBCs and exchange notices; number of beneficiaries for PCORI fee and transitional reinsurance reporting; individual employee hours worked during “look back” and “stabilization” periods to determine eligibility; and the ability to calculate group size (FTE count) for the employer mandate requirement.

HR and Payroll Technology

HR and Payroll Technology

As the management of human resources shifts from the traditional “employment” model to one where companies manage their staffing needs using a range of solutions, e.g., part-time staff, contingent workers and consultants, Human Capital Management (HCM) technology is increasingly critical to providing a framework for supporting the entire hire to retire process.

Health Management and Wellness

Health Management and Wellness

In the drive to control healthcare cost, wellness has moved squarely into the employer purview with blurring lines between the carrot and the stick.
