Modern Healthcare

The percentage of employers with grandfathered healthcare plans continues to dwindle, according to a survey released Thursday.

Just 27.3% of employers responding to an International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans survey said their primary healthcare plan has grandfathered status this year, down from 34.3% last year and 44.6% in 2011. Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, grandfathered plans are exempt from certain requirements, such as providing full coverage of preventive services.
