Important Information on California and Extended Transition Relief SB 1446
California Governor Brown has signed the legislation SB 1446 allowing some small groups to take advantage of extended transition relief. This change will permit some small groups to keep their current health plan even if it does not meet certain requirements under the Affordable Care Act.
Non-grandfathered plans that have not already renewed into an ACA compliant plan will now have the option to keep their existing plan(s) for one more year. Therefore, eligibility to renew in their current plan would only apply to small groups that have not renewed to an ACA compliant plan.
Please communicate to your small employer customers regarding this renewal rights notification. Both you and UnitedHealthcare's Small Group customers will receive additional communications outlining any specific details based on state of California.
