Anthem announced on Friday, August 10th that they are withdrawing from the individual health insurance market for most geographical areas in Virginia in 2018. Anthem stated they plan to only offer individual health insurance in Washington and Scott counties and the city of Bristol next year.
We want to emphasize, Anthem’s exit from the individual market will have no impact on employer sponsored plans. Anthem plans to continue to offer a full array of group health plans in 2018
We will keep you apprised of any significant news related to the issue as events continue to unfold.
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Employee Benefits department if you have any questions.
