Overview

Health care continues to be one of the most important benefits for employees and one of the most complex for employers. At KMK, we strive to fully understand each client’s specific health care needs and concerns so we can help recommend/maintain a plan that works effectively and efficiently.

We work with our clients to comply with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA and ACA). We also help clients develop and maintain health care plans that comply with these complex requirements. We assist with the following:

  • Design for applicable large employers (ALE)
  • Information reporting using Form 1094 and Form 1095
  • Employee communications
  • Grandfathered plan questions
  • Employer shared responsibility payments
