Questions and Answers
 ACA General Questions
    Why hasn't a solution been delivered yet?   We have Open Enrollment and Payroll year end coming up and need time to complete our testing.
    Do I have to have Advanced Benefits to take advantage of the EBS ACA reporting solution?
    I am on Release 11i: Will I still be able to get the ACA reporting solution
    Do I need to set the 'ACA FT' flag for all eligible employees, even if they are designated as Fulltime on their assignment?
    I applied the Release 12.1 Phase 1 patch 21162146:R12.BEN.B, but am not seeing the new plan extra information type (EIT) or the new person special information type (SIT)?
    Is there a way to do a mass data upload to update the new assessment and stability period end dates in the Person Special Information Type (SIT) "ACA Reporting"?
    What other information is available on the Affordable Care Act?
    When printing the 1095-C, we are finding the names of persons covered under our self insured plans truncated in Part III. Will this be an issue with the IRS?
 COBRA and Non-Employee Populations
    We have COBRA and/or Retiree benefits outsourced from EBS. How is reporting going to be handled ?
    What are the reporting requirements that pertain to coverage offered to retirees?  How does Oracle envision meeting these requirements?
    How do you report COBRA coverage for terminated employees who no longer show as participant in EBS?
    We also have a small COBRA population.  We do not record COBRA Enrollment in OAB.  How do we handle the COBRA population?
    If we handle the offering of insurance for COBRA or Retirees outside of Oracle, is there any sort of interface available for importing data into Oracle?
    If we produce a 1095-C for an employee in Oracle, and they terminate and are now given insurance in a separate Retiree App outside of Oracle - Can they be given a separate 1095-C from the retiree App even though the employer EIN will be the same?
    For retired employees who have insurance but not active assignments, how do you designate the ACA Full Time or are they not required in reporting?
    We use Third Party COBRA administrator/  How will we combine COBRA participant information with our current employee participation to produce 1095-C's and the totals for 1094-C?
    My company provided benefits to retirees.  They are not full time employees.  How will Oracle treat these cases?
    COBRA - you're working on.  What about retirees?
