The White House on Monday will issue new rules that strongly discourage employers from cutting health insurance benefits or increasing the costs of coverage to employees.

The administration said this was just one goal of the legislation, allowing people to “keep their current coverage if they like it.” It acknowledged that some people, especially those who work at smaller businesses, might face significant changes in the terms of their coverage, and it said they should be able to “reap the benefits of additional consumer protections.”

Many employers would benefit from the grandfather status because it would allow them to keep a less costly plan in place. It would cost less because the plan is not covering every aspect of the health care reform.  Once the white house gives an official ruling on the Grandfather Status we will have a much clearing picture but at this point its not looking too good.
