Grandmothering Legislation Passes in California

Grandmothering Legislation Passes in California


California Governor Jerry Brown has signed into law SB 1446, known as the “grandmothering” bill and “transitional relief.”

The new law allows qualifying non-grandfathered small employer health plans to remain in effect until December 31, 2015 even if they don’t meet certain requirements under the Affordable Care Act.

There are a couple of important points to note. First, employers will not be required to keep these plans in place; doing so will be their choice. Second, the legislation does not address how rates will be affected.

Please call your Warner Pacific Sales Executive if you have any questions.
