Aetna will exit the Obamacare individual insurance market in Virginia because of the “financial risk” and “growing uncertainty in the marketplace.” The move only affects individual plans sold on and off the federal Obamacare exchange at HealthCare.gov.
T.J. Crawford, Aetna’s spokesman, said in an email, “Despite significantly reducing our exchange footprint, our individual commercial products could potentially lose more than $200 million in 2017.”
Customers covered by Aetna through employers or Medicaid and Medicare Advantage plans will not be affected by this change.
