About the Affordable Care Act
Many consumers across Virginia have questions about the Patient Protection and Affordable
Care Act, (PPACA) (Public Law. No. 111-148) or the "Affordable Care Act” or “ACA”.
This page is presented to assist consumers in better understanding the many changes
this sweeping legislation will bring about, and when to expect these changes. There
are links to "frequently asked questions" and responses, a glossary of insurance
terms, and links to other resources and helpful information about the Affordable Care Act.
The Bureau of Insurance and other involved agencies are making good progress sorting
through the details and interpretations included in the Affordable Care Act, but there are still many unknowns, and many of the details have yet to be
fully determined. We encourage you to visit this page and the associated links regularly
and often as new information is posted.
Important Note: This information
is not intended to be an opinion, legal or otherwise, on the Affordable Care Act, nor should it be construed as a position of the Bureau of Insurance
or the Virginia State Corporation Commission on the ACA
or any of its provisions. It is presented to assist Virginia consumers in understanding
the ACA and how it may impact them.
As with all your insurance questions, we encourage you to contact us if you have
any questions about the Affordable Care Act.
