Year Introduced: 2019

Health benefit plans; sale by authorized foreign health insurers: Establishes a procedure by which the State Corporation Commission may authorize health insurers licensed to sell health benefit plans in any other state to sell health benefit plans in Virginia without obtaining a license to engage in the business of insurance in Virginia or complying with other requirements applicable to Virginia-licensed insurers.

The measure authorizes the Commission to conduct market conduct and financial condition examinations of any foreign health insurer that has applied for, or has received, authorization to sell health benefit plans in Virginia. The measure also specifies disclosures that an authorized foreign health insurer is required to include in applications and policies. The measure has a delayed effective date of January 1, 2020.
