Anthem will provide ACA coverage to all parts of Virginia facing cutoff

No thanks to Congressman Goodlatte, Anthem has agreed to offer health insurance through the Affordable Care Act to every part of Virginia that stood to lose it entirely in 2018.

Announcing the agreement, Gov. Terry McAuliffe pointedly said:

[T]his decision does not change the fact that President Trump and Republicans in Congress are actively working to undermine the Affordable Care Act, to the detriment of states like Virginia. It is imperative that leaders in Washington take quick action to make sure the Marketplace in Virginia and those across the country are sustainable for years to come.

Republican Goodlatte has done everything in his power to undermine the Affordable Care Act, which provides health insurance to more than 30,000 of his Sixth District constituents. He blamed the threatened cutoff in Virginia on the law itself and said it was up to McAuiliffe to find a solution.

Thanks for nothing, Congressman.

One thought on “Anthem will provide ACA coverage to all parts of Virginia facing cutoff

  1. Was Goodlatte one of the VA Congressional Delegation who at least worked on getting Anthem to change its mind? If not, then that failure certainly merits a letter of “reprimand” to him.
