Proposed Rules on Grandfathered Health Plans

In response the President’s Executive Order 13765 “Minimizing the Economic Burden of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Pending Repeal” issued on January 20, 2017, the Departments issued proposed rules for grandfathered health plans that would make changes to certain types of cost-sharing requirements without causing a loss of grandfathered status. The DOL also released a press release and frequently asked questions regarding the proposed rules. The proposed rules only address the requirements for grandfathered group health plans and grandfathered group health insurance coverage and would not apply to grandfathered individual health insurance coverage.

Public comments on the proposed rules are due by August 14, 2020. The proposed rules would apply to grandfathered group health plans and grandfathered group health insurance coverage beginning 30 days after the publication of any final rules.
