Tango Health a ‘Partner’ to Law Firm Akin Gump on Affordable Care Act (ACA) Compliance

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tango Health has been selected by Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, a leading international law firm, to provide Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance services.

Akin Gump chose Tango because of its understanding of the complexities of eligibility and affordability inherent in a law firm’s business model, with employees ranging from partners to seasonal employees.

“We have been impressed by the technical expertise of the Tango team, their knowledge of our particular employee population and their sophisticated enterprise solution for handling compliance data,” said Kimm Merkel, Director of Health Benefits. “Tango has become more than just a vendor; they are a partner in our compliance endeavors.”

With nearly 1,400 total personnel in the United States, Akin Gump worked with its employee benefits consultant to find the best approach and solution to ACA compliance. Tango began providing ACA compliance services to Akin Gump for the 2015 tax year and, under a recent renewal agreement, will continue to provide these services for the 2016 reporting year.

“Organizations with large, diverse workforces rely upon Tango to simplify the complex process of ACA compliance with a customized level of service,” said Todd Praisner, CEO of Tango Health. “The compliance challenge and pressures on employers will only increase as IRS reporting requirements become even more rigorous in 2016.”
