Trump Administration Extends Grandmothered Policies

John GarnerCompliance, Resources

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced an extension for individuals and small businesses who have certain, non-Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant policies. The extension applies to non-ACA compliant coverage offered in the individual and small group market that are commonly referred to as “grandmothered” policies.

These policies are available in over 30 states (California is not one of them) and regulated under applicable state laws. The transition policy is not new; it was originally implemented by the Obama Administration and has been extended several times. The latest extension applies to policies beginning on or before October 1, 2018 that end no later than December 31, 2018. Estimates are that about one million people have these grandmothered policies.
