Field Definitions: HR ACA Coverage Offer Init Form

The following is a list of field descriptions for the HR ACA Coverage Offer Init form. Many of the descriptions include links to other topics that provide additional information about or related to the topic.

Offer Date

Offer Date field on the HR ACA Coverage Offer Init form

Enter the coverage offer date in MM/DD/YYYY format.

If the date specified here matches the Activity Date of any existing history sequence for an employee, initialization will handle the coverage offer as follows:

  • If you selected the Overwrite Existing Data check box and the existing record is for a coverage offer (series one code), the system will update the existing coverage record with any changed data (i.e. expiration date or offer code).

  • If you selected the Overwrite Existing Data check box and the existing record is for an acceptance event (series two code), no coverage offer record will be added.

  • If you do not select the Overwrite Existing Data check box, no coverage offer record will be added.

Overwrite Existing Data

Overwrite Existing Data check box on the HR ACA Coverage Offer Init form

Select this check box to overwrite existing data during initialization. The system will overwrite any existing coverage offer sequence where the Activity Date matches the Offer Date specified for initialization. If the Offer Date does not match the Activity Date of any existing coverage offer sequence, the system will add a new sequence.

If you do not select this check box, the system will add a new coverage offer sequence as long as the Offer Date does not match the Activity Date of an existing coverage offer sequence. If a match is found, no new sequence will be created.

ACA Employment Status
