The ACA module will generate the IRS-required 1094-C and 1095-C forms. The outputs that will be included on these forms can be viewed in the 1094-C and 1095-C tabs in the ACA tool. The appropriate IRS codes will be identified and displayed and can be exported. The values calculated are based on plan eligibilities determined in the system, when coverage was offered based on new hire or variable hour measurement periods, plan costs, and employee compensation data entered into EaseCentral.

The logic to complete the 1094-C and 1095-C forms is already built into the ACA tool. The compliance process is automated saving time and improving the accuracy of results. 

The 1094-C information identifies how many total and full-time employees the company has as well as whether minimum essential coverage (MEC Indicator) is offered for each month. This form is known as a “transmittal” and is essentially a “cover sheet” for the 1095-C forms. The 1094-C outputs, in addition to information about the employer and the total number of 1095-C forms that will also be filed, will be mapped onto the IRS 1094-C forms generated by the EaseCentral ACA module.

Aggregated Group Indicator

This section of the 1094-C is used to indicate whether the ALE member is part of an Aggregated Group. An Aggregated Group (also known as “Shared Ownership”) exists if the businesses have one of the following relationships: parent-subsidiary, brother-sister, or combination of the above.  If the Aggregated Group check box is marked on the ACA > Settings page, the Aggregated Group Indicator boxes on the 1094-C tab will default to checked.  An employer may deselect any boxes for months they were not considered part of an Aggregated Group.

The 1094-C form can be generated on the ACA > Reporting page. For employers that want to e-file, they can use this file generated from the ACA module to electronically file the 1094 and 1095 forms with our partner Nelco.
