Frequently Asked Questions

How do you determine if a temp is ACA eligible?

We use the Initial and Standard Measurement Periods to determine eligibility. The Admin Period follows the measurement period and must last at least 30 days and no more than 90 days. If determined to be eligible (full-time), the employee must be offered the healthcare plan. If the employee accepts, they must be enrolled prior to the end of the Admin Period.

What is the difference between Initial and Standard Measurement periods? Are both necessary?

Both are necessary. The Initial Measurement Period is used to determine ACA Eligibility of a new variable hour employee. The Standard Measurement Period is used to determine ACA Eligibility of an existing employee. The standard measurement and determination rotation continues as long as the employee is employed.

Will you provide the 1094 and 1095s? If so, is there a cost associated with that?

Yes, Nextaff will file those forms. Please contact your Account Manager to discuss your options and pricing.

If an employee returns to work and it’s been less than 13 weeks, does their coverage continue? If so, is that contingent on them paying for any missed premiums during their absence?

An employee reaches a qualifying break-in-service if:

  • An Employee has a period of 13 weeks or more of no paycheck/transaction activity
  • Rule of Parity: An Employee has a period of no paycheck/transaction activity between 4 – 12 weeks, and this period is greater than the length of the employee’s previous assignment
    If the employee has not paid their premiums during an absence, the handling of their insurance coverage is dependent on your process. This may be determined by you and/or your insurance provider.

Do you report COBRA participants?

Yes, we track and report those ex-employees eligible for COBRA.

Why are the invoice line items by total invoice bill and not by employee line item?

This is to avoid any infractions to co-employment rules and possible HIPAA violations.
