Guidance Issued on Grandfathered Health Plan Status

In addition, the FAQs provide limited guidance on general implementation issues related to preventive health services, policy rescission, dental and vision benefits, policy years and effective dates and compliance exemptions for retiree health plans.  Click here for the DOL FAQ
