Affordable Care Act

Many consumers across Virginia have questions about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, (PPACA) (Public Law. No. 111-148) or the "Affordable Care Act” or “ACA”. This page is presented to assist consumers in better understanding the many changes this sweeping legislation will bring about, and when to expect these changes.
The Bureau of Insurance and other involved agencies are making good progress sorting through the details and interpretations included in the Affordable Care Act, but there are still many unknowns, and many of the details have yet to be fully determined. We encourage you to visit this page and the associated links regularly and often as new information is posted.




Important Note: This information is not intended to be an opinion, legal or otherwise, on the Affordable Care Act, nor should it be construed as a position of the Bureau of Insurance or the Virginia State Corporation Commission on the ACA or any of its provisions. It is presented to assist Virginia consumers in understanding the ACA and how it may impact them.

As with all your insurance questions, we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions about the Affordable Care Act.
