    • Note: You will not see any employee data loaded under “Measurement Periods” until the employee has completed their “Initial Measurement.
  2. The employee will be enrolled in the default lowest cost Qualified Health Plan
    • If there are no Qualified Health Plans acknowledged, the system will produce an error stating there are no "eligible benefits" and the process will not complete.
    • A Medical Plan is considered eligible when the “This plan is a Qualified Health Plan” has been selected at the plan level


    • To mark your medical plans as a Qualified Health Plan, follow steps below:
    • From the menu, go to Settings > Benefit Management > click into applicable package > click “Step 2 – Configure Benefit Structure" > click into applicable Medical Plan Name > scroll half way down the screen, and check box marked "This plan meets Minimum Essential Coverage (MEC) as defined by the ACA"


  3. An "ACA Status Change Event" window opens for the employee, and is available for the duration of the Administrative Period
    • The event will display under Employee > Employee Homepage > Enrollment Windows.
