The Cedar Rapids (IA) Gazette Share to FacebookShare to Twitter (4/11, Ramm) reports that insurance officials in Iowa “are considering extending non-compliant plans under the Affordable Care Act through next year, an option given to states by federal authorities earlier this week.” The article says that these plans, also called “grand mothered plans, are health insurance coverage plans that were purchased after the passage of the ACA, but before it was fully implemented in 2014.” They are considered “non-compliant” because they do not meet certain ACA requirements. The piece adds that some 37,000 Iowans are covered by these plans.
