  • “Keeping The Health Plan You Have” Not So Simple For Entrepreneurs
    The Health Plan You Have Not So Simple For Entrepreneurs Wednesday August 18 2010 For Immediate Release Contact Kristin Oberlander 202 466 2100 koberlander NASEadmin org Twitter NASEtweets Micro Businesses Are Unsure Of New Grandfathered Status Rules for Health Plans Washington D C August 18 2010 When it comes to health insurance micro businesses less than 10 employees and the self employed have long faced difficulties finding coverage that meets their affordability and health needs The new health care law the Affordable Care Act offers entrepreneurs the choice to keep the plan that they already have provided that it meets certain requirements The trouble is that most entrepreneurs are uncertain that their plan will meet these new rules and how the changes required by the health reform law will affect their monthly premium costs according to a survey released today by the National Association for the Self Employed NASE Micro business perceptions of grandfathered plan status Sixty five percent of micro businesses say they only somewhat or slightly understand the new grandfathered plan requirements and how it may impact their ability to keep their plans Of those aware of the requirements to maintain grandfathered status of a health plan 43 percent believe they can keep their plan Fifty seven percent were either unsure or knew that they would not be unable to keep their current plan Ninety two percent believe the self employed and small business owners should receive a notice from their insurer or from the Federal Government about whether their plan qualifies as a grandfathered plan With close to 50 of micro business respondents wishing to keep their current coverage a clear understanding of the grandfathered status regulations will be essential to a small business owner s ability to maintain their existing coverage The self employed and micro businesses are always looking at how to get the best deal and health coverage is no exception commented Kristie Arslan executive director of NASE s Legislative Offices Our concern with the current grandfathered status regulations is that it leaves business owners with little wiggle room to make key adjustments to their existing health plan to maintain its affordability for the business owner and employees Ultimately micro businesses will be forced to drop their plan they were hoping to keep and be pushed into the new insurance market which is likely to offer more robust but also more expensive health plans NASE s survey found that approximately 67 percent of respondents have changed insurance carriers since the inception of their business with 55 percent indicating that the primary driver for the change corresponded with the desire to find a better deal or lower costs Many who made adjustments to their existing health plan to address costs did so by adjusting their deductibles a move that under proposed rules would force them to lose their grandfathered status The Coalition for Affordable Health Care of which the NASE is a member recently submitted a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
