benefitexpress Takes on the Challenges of ACA Administration with Ease

Written by benefitexpress | June 2, 2015

Schaumburg, IL -- Benefit Express Services, LLC, a leader in providing benefits administration for large, medium, and small organizations, has released new Affordable Care Act (ACA) services as part of their suite of Employee Benefit Administration services.

ACA regulations and requirements for compliance are complicated, detailed and continuing to change. Employers are looking for answers and assistance from a company they can trust. benefitexpress has launched solutions for ACA compliance which complement the tools already in place for their benefit administration clients as well as other employers needing help.

Their à la carte model allows employers to pick and choose the services they need. As an example, many employers are wrestling with how to comply with the federally-mandated eligibility requirements for variable hour employees. Employers don't have the capacity to track and calculate the difficult look-back measurements. This exposes employers to a huge compliance risk. benefitexpress clients have a way to store, track, and report on this important data. At the same time, benefitexpress will offer the required benefits to those employees who, under ACA, become eligible for medical coverage.
