Bon Secours teams up with VCU Health and its health plan for 4 ACA marketplace products

Richmond, Va.-based Bon Secours Health System partnered with VCU Health, also in Richmond, and its subsidiary health plan to offer individual policies on Virginia's ACA health insurance exchange.

VCU Health's insurer, Virginia Premier, will offer four policies for 2019 coverage across eight central Virginia counties and the city of Richmond. Bon Secours and VCU Health providers, hospitals and other facilities will make up the network serving Virginia Premier's individual members.

This is Virginia Premier's first foray into the state's individual insurance market. Three of four health plans offering individual policies on Virginia's exchange didn't offer coverage for 2018.

Virginia Premier's four new products require approval from the Virgina Bureau of Insurance and CMS. Pending approval, the consumers can begin enrolling in the policies during the ACA's next open enrollment period, slated to run from Nov. 1 through Dec. 15.
