Tech Company Aids Health Insurers in Meeting ACA Tax Requirements

Clarity Software Solutions Creates Millions of 1095 Forms for Health Plans Nationwide

Madison, CT (April 25, 2017) – Clarity Software Solutions, Inc., a leading technology provider to the healthcare industry, created the forms to help health insurers comply with the tax reporting requirement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for the tax year just concluded. Beginning with the 2016 tax returns, every American citizen was required to provide proof of health insurance coverage, and therefore all health insurance companies were required to furnish policy holders with Form 1095-B as that proof. Clarity’s document management solution makes complying with that requirement simple for health insurers.

“This year we produced millions of 1095 forms for our clients…many of them in electronic form,” said Dan Schlaff, Clarity COO / Compliance & Security Officer. “We take pride in our ability to keep up with the changes in the healthcare industry, and post-election, as healthcare developments continue to unfold, we will carefully monitor changes to ensure we’re offering our clients the tools they need to be successful and compliant.”

Clarity’s document management solution meets the IRS’s XML transmittal requirements and was able to successfully file timely, accurate electronic returns with the IRS Affordable Care Act Information Returns (AIR) system. The company’s detailed reporting feature creates audit trails that provide an accurate history. Clarity has made careful stewardship of Protected Health Information (PHI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) its top priority and all member information they receive or transmit is protected through the use of FTPS, a FTP protocol that is combined with SSL encryption for security.
