Waiver Code

Estimated reading time: 2 min

Configuration > ACA Setup > Waiver Code

While the ACA requires applicable large employers to offer affordable employer-provided health
coverage, an employee is under no obligation to accept. The IRS has strongly advised that when an
employee waives coverage, it be annotated that they waived and when that occurred.

For variable-hour employees, a waiver is only good through the measurement period that was in place
when the waiver was requested. An employer must open up coverage after each measurement period and all
prior waivers are voided. You must resubmit waivers for every measurement period.

To add a code click the “Add New Waiver Code” button. You can edit or delete existing codes as well.

Waiver Code: Enter a waiver code you would like to use to track employees who refuse coverage.

Description: Provide a description of the waiver code
