ACA Reporting Made Easy
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) can be overwhelming, but you don’t need to be an expert to stay compliant. ACA compliance software keeps track of important data and helps you manage complex reporting requirements.
Whether your plans are fully insured or self-insured, our ACA software allows you to confidently manage ACA requirements throughout the year.
Save Time, Ensure Compliance,
& Avoid Penalties
SentricHR automatically captures changes and calculates employee status and coverage so you stay compliant. At the end of each year, we keep you on track with reporting deadlines and notify you when it’s time to review, calculate, and submit your ACA data for processing.
Manage Everything ACA
From daily data management all the way to reporting, our ACA compliance software dashboard visualizes your key ACA data and makes it easy to take action:
- View, edit, and create new ACA benefit plans
- Ensure Minimum Essential Coverage and Minimum Value
- Manage enrollments, eligibility, dependents, premiums, and plans
- View and publish Form 1095-C and Form 1094-C

Free yourself from duplicate data entry and manual updates. SentricHR streamlines ACA management by automatically capturing changes and calculating the right company measurement periods, employee statuses, and coverage.
Track Variable Hour
Variable hour employees can make ACA compliance even trickier. According to the IRS, an employee is a variable hour employee if it cannot be determined that the employee is reasonably expected to work on average at least 30 hours per week on their start date.
Our ACA measurement tool tracks and measures hours worked so it’s easy for you to classify employees and offer the appropriate coverage.
Stay ahead of compliance risks and avoid penalties and fees. Our ACA compliance solution features built-in audit tools for accurate, complete filing every time:
- We send reporting deadline notifications so you know when it’s time to submit your ACA data
- Our software automatically identifies missing or incomplete data and compliance risks before you submit
- We share ACA tips, tricks, and resources to help you every step of the way
When it’s time to file, our ACA software does it all for you. SentricHR automatically calculates 1095-C coverage, premiums, and safe harbor codes. All you need to do is review your data and submit it to us.
From there, we process, print, and file your Forms 1094-C and 1095-C, making sure they’re accurate and complete before we submit them to your employees and the IRS on your behalf.
