Welcome to BASIC


Thank you for being a BASIC ACA Elevate client. This is a comprehensive program that provides you with peace of mind related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Employer Shared Responsibility Mandate. Getting started is easy! If you are new to BASIC ACA Elevate, please start with Step 1 below. Otherwise, proceed to Step 2.

Important Note: The 2024 ACA Elevate system will not be available until the fall of 2024. All templates are relevant to 2023 reporting. If you are a new BASIC client for 2024, you can still schedule an onboarding call and watch a webinar. However, more details (including your login information) will be available in the fall of 2024.

1) Schedule and Attend an Education Call

Please use the registration link(s) below to sign up for an upcoming ACA Elevate webinar.

If no scheduled dates or times work for you, or if you would like to have an individual education call with one of BASIC’s Education Call Specialists, please email basiconboarding@basiconline.com with two dates and times that fit your schedule.

PLEASE NOTE: Many of the determinations needed to comply with the ACA are detailed and specific to your plan. Your Education Call Specialist will not be able to advise you on making these specific determinations. Reviewing the provided manuals and asking questions to your benefit advisor, benefit counsel, or broker prior to the call is recommended.

You can use the Administration Manual to help you make the following determinations:

  • Is your plan affordable?
  • Does your plan offer coverage to your FTEs’ dependents?
  • Are you a new ALE?

3) Set Up Employer Profiles and Classes

For your convenience, a secure login will be created for you to access the ACA Elevate system in the fall of 2024. You will receive an email with your credentials when you are able to login for 2024. Follow email instructions to login and update your password.
