On Oct. 15, 2015, Insurance Commissioner Stewart issued Bulletin No. 79 related to the definition of small group under state law. Delaware insurance statutes define a small group as an employer with up to 50 employees. Because the federal provision mandating the change of small group to 100 employees is no longer in effect as a result of the PACE Act, Delaware will keep the definition of small group at 50 employees. Thus, groups with 51 to 100 employees will continue to be rated as large groups and will not be required to switch to the small group market in 2016.
