When the Affordable Care Act first passed, California community colleges scrambled to learn all they could about how it would affect employees. Shasta College officials went to confusing trainings sessions and tried to figure out departmentally who was going to oversee what piece of this complex legislation.
Spreadsheets for tracking hours for part-time employees were developed and manually maintained, but it was more difficult to track the hours of part-time faculty. As it tried to develop an ACA compliance process, college officials recognized they did not have an audit method in place to ensure that the college’s ACA compliance process would result in compliance according to ACA and IRS regulations. Employee data necessary for ACA reporting to the IRS was spread across disparate silos. The college’s HR team did not have the depth to manage ACA compliance effectively. College officials turned to Trusaic.
We explained the technical and complex components of the ACA in layperson's terms to college officials. We customized ACA data analysis specifically for Shasta College's unique and complex data and employee structure. A dedicated ACA Specialist was provided to be the go-to resource for the departments involved in ACA compliance, including payroll, IT and Human Resources. Trusaic began sending a monthly report that provided college officials with both comprehensive data and action items that identified issues and employees missing offers of health coverage. All of which has made ACA compliance a more effective and less intrusive process, and freed up staff to focus on important priorities to advance the college’s agenda.
