South Carolina Blues - Health Care Reform and You


Health Care Reform and You

We’re here to help you understand health care reform. Based on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) guidelines, you may need to purchase a new health insurance plan. Current members will fall into two categories -- individuals and small business owners. 


  • Grandfathered Plans: If you purchased individual insurance on or before March 23, 2010, and have not made any changes to your plan. Learn more.
  • Non-Grandfathered Plans: If you purchased a policy after March 23, 2010, you will have two plan types:
  1. Trust-Product Plans: Insurance purchased between Oct. 1, 2010, and Dec. 15, 2013.
  2. Interim Non-Grandfathered Plans:  Insurance purchased with an effective date between April 1, 2010, and Sept. 15, 2010.
