Virginia Officials Issue Statements on Anthem DecisionPosted: Updated:
Virginians will still be able to buy health insurance through the federal marketplace - now that health insurer, Anthem, announced it will not pull out of the Affordable Care Act.
Governor Terry McAuliffe said in a statement on Friday that he is grateful Anthem reversed its decision to leave the marketplace.
Sixty thousand people stood to be unable to buy coverage by next year.
Anthem will offer plans in 68 cities and counties.
Our partners at the Daily Progress report that coverage will not be available in portions of central Virginia, including Charlottesville and Albemarle County.
