PACE Act changes small group definition back to 50 or less, except in NY

While almost every state in the country has opted to continue with the current rules – small group is 2-50 employees – New York’s Governor still refused to sign off on legislation.  This means that – for the employer with 51-99 employees, you will be considered a large group at renewal time.  This could work in your favor, or be to your detriment, depending on alot of factors.  Group census, claims experience, and current rates all will play into decisions this coming year.
