White House Extends Transition Policy

On March 5, 2014, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) extended the transition relief policy  for two years to policy years beginning on or before Oct. 1, 2016.  Thus, individuals and small businesses may be able to keep their non-ACA compliant coverage into 2017, depending on the plan or policy year.

Two-year Extension
Under the transition relief extension, at the option of the states, issuers that have issued or will issue a policy under the transitional relief in 2014 may renew these policies at any time through Oct. 1, 2016, and affected individuals and small businesses may choose to re-enroll in the coverage through Oct. 1, 2016. Policies that are renewed under the extended transition relief will not be considered to be out of compliance with specified ACA reforms.
