HHS letter to State Insurance Commissioners
A section of the HHS issued a letter telling State Ins commissions they could allow more grandfathering of policies (see link).
Of course the regulations promulgated by the HHS say otherwise.
The State insurance commissions are now in a position of either complying with policy or regulations. If they choose the former, the insurance companies would have to worry about their legal liability if they issue a policy that does not comply with the Code of Federal regulations.
Of course, the Obama team will try to now say the ball is in someone else's court. If by court they mean law court, they may be right.
