Health Benefit Exchange

About the Exchange

Virginia is establishing a State Based Exchange on the Federal Platform for plan year 2021, before transitioning to a full State-Based Exchange by plan year 2023. The SCC is creating the Virginia Health Benefit Exchange (Virginia Exchange) to serve this purpose. Virginia consumers will continue to visit to shop and enroll in ACA health plans and view financial assistance available. Small business health insurance is also available.

The Virginia Exchange will have consumer assistance functions, including Navigators, Certified Application Counselor Designated Organizations (CDOs), and Certified Application Counselors (CACs).
