On November 19th, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe(D) signed into law SB 5014, which allows health insurance companies to continue offering non-ACA compliant plans through 2017. This comes as welcome relief for the nearly 250,000 Virginians who had their plans cancelled beginning in October, including me.
What is also interested is that there was no press release announcing that the Governor had signed this legislation and as of this post, no articles in the media that I could find announcing this news. In fact, the only reason I believed that McAuliffe had actually signed the law, was that I received a letter from my health insurance company letting me know that I could in fact keep my plan that they had cancelled earlier this year.
While this is welcome relief for now, Obamacare is still a mess as a whole. Campaign for Liberty supports repealing Obamacare and allowing individuals - not government- to decide the best health insurance for their needs.
