President Obama announces regulatory change for individual and small group coverage

President Obama announced a regulatory change to the Affordable Care Act (ACA, or health care reform law) on Nov. 13, 2013. The change states that insurers can let individuals and small businesses keep the plan that they have this year into 2014, addressing concerns of rate shock as their current plans discontinue at the end of this year.  
Insurers and states are evaluating the policy change, and more detail is still expected regarding the announcement. We will share more information when we have it.
