How we're different

Having accurate results makes all the difference with ACA compliance. Other ACA vendors, like HRIS and payroll providers, offer incomplete ACA solutions. They only look at some of the ACA data ‒ not the full picture needed for accurate ACA compliance. Our Tango Health ACA solution combines our ACA compliance software and expert ACA services to turn your payroll and benefits information into ACA-ready data from the start. And we continue to pull, clean and analyze your data monthly so that we can identify any potential issues early.                  

Here’s what makes our ACA compliance solution better: 

    1. Proven ACA vendor gives you peace of mind. Tango Health has filed on time for our clients every year since the ACA was law. We received an NPS score of Excellent and are trusted by are clients including some of the largest healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, defense contractors, government and higher education organizations in the U.S.
    2. Easy to switch from your current provider. We are experienced mapping data feeds to our ACA software so there’s no downtime and minimal effort from you.
    3. Experience helping with systems chaos. Most Tango clients have multiple systems tracking key data needed for ACA reporting. We untangle the mess for you and bring the data together for a full and accurate picture of your ACA reporting.
    4. Higher standard of accuracy mitigates your risk.  Our data scientists and robust software clean up all your data so it’s ready for accurate ACA reporting.  with stringent processes as well as SOC1 & SOC2 Type II and SOC 3 Certifications.
    5. Year-round expert guidance keeps you on track. Your designated Client Manager helps you to manage ACA reporting requirements with data audits and alerts; report analysis, printing of 1095-C forms, filing 1094-C forms with the IRS and ACA news and updates. Our experts help you with the basics of ACA. We were the first vendor to notify clients and prospects about the upcoming state-level individual mandate reporting.
    6. Expedited ACA penalty assistance is included. With our help, you’re able to efficiently respond to ACA penalty notices or subsidy notifications from Healthcare Marketplaces. We’ve helped our clients reduce their risk by 89%–saving them millions of dollars.
    7. Mergers and Acquisitions are our specialty. ACA is unforgiving when it comes to mergers and acquisitions; we do them the right way, every time and help ensure your acquired entities meet the rigor of ACA from day one.
    8. Complex employee groups are made easy with Tango. Tracking some employees is more challenging than others. Whether variable hour employees, those that come and go throughout the year, seasonal employees, interns, or unions, our reporting keeps you compliant.
    9. Artificial Intelligence (AI) automatically detects potential data issues. Our software streamlines the ACA process with automatic reviews of the 1095-C code combination and alerts when there are data issues or files are ready to be submitted to the IRS.
    10. Expert ACA call center extends your team. Our ACA call center experts are located in Austin, TX and help answer common employee questions such as “What is a 1095-C form and what do I need to do with it?”
    11. Data Security is our top priority. We strive to keep your data with stringent processes as well as SOC1 & SOC2 Type II and SOC 3 Certifications.
    12. Lookback measurement period results in more accurate data tracking. We use the Lookback Measurement Period for ACA data tracking rather than the Monthly Measurement Period.  The Lookback Measurement Period approach utilizes multi-level statistical analysis for employee’s work hours and provides you with advanced warning to take action should coverage need to be added, ultimately limiting your risk for ACA penalties.
    13. State individual mandates. With some states passing their own individual mandates, it makes it difficult for companies to keep up with all the different regulations and reporting requirements. To learn more about state individual mandates, check out our guide.
