Duarte Unified School District

"Without their assistance, we could have been subjected to affordability penalties."

“They clean, validate, and transform our data into actionable items that provide great insight on our compliance in regards to the ACA.”

 

The Duarte Unified School District is very satisfied with the level of customer service we have received from First Capitol Consulting. They have prepared our ACA filings since reporting by employers was first required in 2015. As the law has been in a turbulent state since inception, First Capitol has been available at a moment’s notice to inform of us critical ACA changes and updates that may affect us. For example, they educated us on the impacts of flex-credits as well as the different types of opt-out payments. Without their assistance, we could have been subjected to affordability penalties under the Employer Shared Responsibly Provisions.

On a monthly basis, several parties from our organization transmit data reports to First Capitol. They clean, validate, and transform our data into actionable items that provide great insight on our compliance in regards to the ACA. Their efforts don’t stop there however. As a school district, our workforce is comprised of varying degrees of different employee classifications. Determining who was eligible for benefits proved to be a fraught and tedious task. First Capitol accounted for our educational breaks in service, calculated individual contribution rates based on an employee’s flex credit distribution, and made the overall process of extending health coverage much simpler. Without their expertise on this, the final codes on the 1095-C schedules would have been impacted.

First Capitol has visited us on-site multiple times, one in which they hand delivered the 1095-C schedules to be furnished to our workforce. First Capitol Consulting has exceeded our expectations and has proven to be an excellent data & analytics company focusing on Affordable Care Act compliance and reporting. The Duarte Unified School District holds no reservations in recommending First Capitol’s services as Affordable Care Act content experts.
