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 2021 and goes through August 2022. Because that stability period covers eight months in 2022, the employer needs information about the associated measurement period that precedes it, going from 2020 to 2021.

The second stability period for 2022 would then begin in September 2022  and end in August 2023. Because that stability period covers four months in 2022, the employer needs information about the associated measurement period that precedes it, from 2021 to 2022.
