VSB Solo Practitioners Now Eligible for Group Health Insurance Rates

With the passage of SB 672 by the General Assembly, a “small group” may now be defined for health insurance purposes to include sole practitioners so long as they work for 30 hours per week or more. This change allows solo lawyers to obtain health insurance coverage for the historically lower rates and better coverages available to law firms with 2-50 employees.

According to Bob Spicknall of the Virginia State Bar Members’ Insurance Center, Anthem is the only carrier currently participating in the new rates, which take effect on July 1, but other carriers may soon join the program.
