HEADS UP: Virginia is trying to make sure folks can keep their health care plans.
RICHMOND, Va.—The fight over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — or Obamacare for short — never seems to end.
Virginia’s Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment has introduced two separate bills with the same goal — making sure heath insurance companies can continue health insurance plans otherwise discontinued by President Obama’s signature health care law.
SB 5013 and SB 5014 would put legislative weight to Obama administration rules that extend health insurance carriers’ ability to offer otherwise canceled plans, as long as state leaders allow it, through 2016 — a presidential election year. Originally, the offer was only extended through October, right before the midterm elections.
