ACA Reporting - Flock simplifies the process

ACA reporting isn’t a simple business...it’s confusing, and, more importantly, it’s new to most brokers and employers alike. Flock has offered an ACA reporting solution since this became a requirement in 2016 with passage of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

US Senate Fails to Pass ACA Repeal Bill

US Senate Fails to Pass ACA Repeal Bill

Last week, the U.S. Senate failed to pass the Health Care Freedom Act, a bill which intended to repeal many requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

While the future of the ACA repeal effort is certainly unclear at this time, pending any further developments, all existing ACA requirements remain in effect, including penalties for noncompliance and reporting.

At Flock our goal is to provide the tools to keep your ACA house in order... visit our recent post on how Flock simplifies the process of ACA reporting.
