Virginia’s Insurance Marketplace is the Commonwealth’s official health insurance marketplace. Our mission is to ensure that all Virginians have access to affordable, high-quality health coverage. The Marketplace also helps small businesses provide affordable health and dental coverage to their employees.

In response to legislation enacted by the state General Assembly, Virginia launched its own state-based health insurance marketplace in November 2023. The Marketplace offers a wide variety of plans for Virginians to shop for during the 2024 Open Enrollment Period.

The Marketplace is overseen by the Virginia State Corporation Commission (SCC) –– an independent state agency responsible for overseeing many business and economic interests in Virginia. The SCC is organized as an independent department of state government with delegated administrative, legislative, and judicial powers.
