    Update on SAP's plan for latest Healthcare (ACA) reform requirements

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      As an update, we (PASSHE) just had a call with the SAP Product Manager on the IRS requirements to deliver reports for IRS sections 6055 and 6056. At this point, SAP says that custom reports/forms would need to developed to meet these requirements. Based on our understanding of these requirements, specifically for forms 1095-C and 1094-C described below, these requirements will be very time consuming and costly for companies to address with custom reports and forms. However, if your company has already developed specifications for the development of these reports/forms, please respond to this forum for our members. Likewise, if you do not have customization plans and feel these requirements should be addressed by a standard SAP solution like W2's, COBRA, New Hire Reporting etc., please provide your response as well.
