W. VA | POLICY | New West Virginia Law Expands Health Freedom

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (June 13, 2017) – Today, a new West Virginia law goes into effect that will help facilitate healthcare freedom without government regulation. Del. Joel Ellington (R-Princeton) and Del. Amy Summers (R-Flemington) sponsored House Bill 2301 (HB2301). The new law specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not constitute insurance, thereby freeing doctors and patients from the onerous requirements and regulations under the state insurance code. The bill also stipulates that neither direct primary care providers nor their agents are required to obtain a certification of authority or license under chapter thirty-three to market, sell, or offer to sell a direct primary care agreement. HB2301 includes provisions defining and establishing requirements for direct primary care agreements.
