New Balance Billing Protection
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.Get More Information
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.
