The Department of Labor released the interim final rules on who pays for preventative care under the new health care reform. And it doesn’t look good if you’ve lost your grandfathered status.
Under the Affordable Care Act, non-grandfathered plans must cover certain preventative care service with no cost-sharing with the participant (meaning no deductible, co-payments, etc.) The new rules go into effect for non-grandfathered plans with the first plan year beginning on or after September 23, 2010.
