Viewing Multiple Measurement Periods in ACA Compliance

The Employee Table on the ACA Compliance Overview page may sometimes display two different measurement periods. This occurs if the employer has two stability periods that cover the calendar year. Employers who have non-calendar years in place (i.e. a plan year that does not begin in January) are more likely to see this occur.

Example of multiple measurement periods

An employer has one stability period that begins in September 2020 and goes through August 2021. Because that stability period covers eight months in 2021, the employer needs information about the associated measurement period that precedes it, going from 2019 to 2020

The second stability period for 2021would then begin in September 2021  and end in August 2022. Because that stability period covers four months in 2021, the employer needs information about the associated measurement period that precedes it, from 2020 to 2021.
