We have just received word that Anthem will stop selling individual health insurance in Virginia in 2018. This means that if you are covered by an Anthem Affordable Care Act compliant individual / family health plan, your plan is ending on December 31, 2017. You can continue to use your plan through the end of this year.
However, you will need to find new coverage effective January 1, 2018.
We are monitoring the situation closely, and will be in touch with more details as they become available. In the meantime, here is a link to an an FAQ sheet directly from Anthem.
Note: You are not impacted if you:
- Are enrolled in a Grandfathered Anthem plan (purchased before March, 2010)
- Receive your health insurance benefits through your employer
- Are covered by an Anthem Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage plan
- Are covered by Anthem individual dental, vision, or life insurance.
