Health Benefit Exchange

Exchange Overview

In response to legislation enacted by the Virginia General Assembly, the State Corporation Commission is overseeing Virginia's transition to a new state-based health benefit exchange. For plan years 2021 and 2022, Virginians in need of health insurance that complies with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) may continue to shop for and enroll in coverage and view financial assistance available using Health insurance coverage for small business is also available. The SCC expects the transition to a fully state-based operation to be complete for plan year 2023.

We will provide additional information over the transition period, adding information with the consumer in mind as well as managing requirements for those providing assistance services to consumers with navigating and selecting appropriate coverage within the exchange.
