The Affordable Care Act and Grandfathered Health Plans
 
On June 14, 2010, the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Labor, and Department of Health and Human Services jointly released interim final rules (the "Regulations") that will help employers identify which health plans will qualify as grandfathered health plans under the recently enacted health reform law (the "Act") and the types of changes that they can make to those plans without causing a loss of grandfathered status. Sponsors of group health plans have been anxiously awaiting this guidance because grandfathered plans are exempt from some key provisions of the Act. For more information, please check out the following links:
