  • A grandfathered plan is wholly exempt from several of the health care reform provisions, and enjoys the benefit of a delayed effective date with respect to others. However, the health care reform legislation passed by Congress contained only a bare definition of “grandfathered plan” as “a plan that was in existence on March 23, 2010.” Further guidance with respect to what a grandfathered plan is and how a grandfathered plan could lose its status was left to the administrative agencies.
