Individual & Family Plans for 2018
We have been closely monitoring recent developments in the Individual health insurance market and their impact for 2018.
We have been closely monitoring recent developments in the Individual health insurance market and the impact they will have on individuals across the state, brokers, and our business for 2018. In keeping with our mission to improve health every day, Optima Health will continue to offer Individual plans in 2018, both on and off the Health Insurance Marketplace.
In order to do so, it is necessary for us to withdraw from some regions and raise rates in the regions we will serve. While this is not the outcome we had hoped, it will allow us to provide coverage to 80% of our existing members and another 70,000 Virginians who are losing their current insurance plans. We will continue to serve our existing markets with our employer-based, Medicare, and Medicaid plans.
