"ACA Compliance and Higher Education: Understanding Eligibility and IRS Reporting"

During this session, Kristin Lewis, director of Product Management for Equifax Workforce Solutions, will join Tom Dowling, partner, Stinson Leonard Street LLP, to discuss the specific ACA compliance risks that exist for higher education as well as best practices for ongoing ACA management. In addition, this session will review the special rules that apply to higher education when it comes to measuring and tracking hours to determine who is eligible for coverage and the proper way to communicate this information across the institution to multiple stakeholders. Attendees of this webinar will learn more about calculating look-back periods and IRS reporting and take away actionable insights on the processes they can put in place to ensure their institution remains compliant today and in the future.

"Compliance that Pays for Itself"
