Balance Billing Protection
Effective January 1, 2021, all fully insured groups and self-insured groups who opt-in are protected from balance billing by the new balance billing law under Virginia legislation. Elective (level-funded or self-funded) Group Health Plans must submit the opt-in form at least 30 days in advance of the effective date of the election to participate (January 1 of any year or the first day of the group health plan's plan year).
The new law prevents certain balance billing, but does not apply to all health plans. Please refer to the compliance notice for more information.Learn More
As a courtesy to our self-funded groups, we would like to remind you that beginning January 1, 2021, many Virginians covered under health insurance plans have protection from “surprise billing” or balance billing.
