Staying informed on ACA
In the spirit of being prepared, a few of our HR/Payroll Support team attended an ACA webinar today hosted by the Monterey County Office of Education. The presentation in the morning was from Ruben Ingram, Ed.D., Executive Director, School Employers Association of California (SEAC). Ruben discussed the measurement, coverage and administrative periods, affordable coverage and penalties. An incredible amount of information was presented but the key take away for our team was a better understanding of the definition of ‘affordable.’ This will make our jobs easier when defining and developing CR 13457, Affordability Report in release 15.01.
The afternoon presentation was led by Phil Davis, Business Systems Support Coordinator at MCOE. Phil reviewed the Escape ACA Changes, Escape Setup for ACA and Pay60 report with all of the districts. We appreciate Phil and the team at MCOE for taking the time to educate their districts on all the changes Escape has completed for ACA!
