Beginning January 1, 2021, Virginia state law protects members from balance or “surprise billing.” Elective (self-funded) Group Health Plans must opt-in to this balance billing law at least 30 days prior to their effective date if they would like to offer this protection to their employees. Employers can choose to opt in effective January 1 or effective on the first day of the group’s plan year.
