Colorado: Non-ACA-Compliant Plans Will No Longer be Sold in 2016

The Colorado Division of Insurance (DOI) announced that health insurance plans for individuals and small employers that do not meet ACA requirements will not be sold in 2016, despite federal guidance that permits states to renew non-ACA-compliant plans through 2017. The DOI clarified that grandfathered plans, as defined by the ACA with an effective date prior to March 23, 2010, will not be impacted, but estimates that nearly 190,000 individuals currently enrolled in non-ACA-compliant plans will need to transition to compliant coverage.
