A heads up for our "mom and pop" groups!

A little heads up to some of our smaller groups that have health insurance with Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina:
They’ve notified us that they recently received clarification from the federal government regarding certain provisions in the health care reform law (“Obamacare”). The new information requires them to identify covered groups that are sole proprietorships or two-person groups in which the covered members were spouses as of December 31, 2011. (We’ve got a few of those!)
So on Monday, May 14, they will begin calling all groups that they think might fall into these categories to gather this information.
The information they will be asking for will not affect their coverage, just how Blue Cross complies with certain requirements of the law that apply differently to group markets and the individual market.
