As you well know, the proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA) was pulled in its entirety and the vote cancelled after a failure to unify Republican support for the bill. So what does this mean for school, city and county employers? It means you must continue to comply with all the ACA provisions that apply to your organization.
Applicable Large Employers (ALE)
If you haven’t already done this, the deadline to determine your ALE status remains in effect, and electronic filing (6055 & 6056) is required at the end of this week on March 31, 2017. If you had fewer than 50 full-time employees on average during the prior year, then you are not considered an ALE for the current calendar year. If you had at least 50 full-time employees on average during the prior year, you are considered an ALE for the current calendar year.
