Virginia Governor Backs Oversight Rules for Plans

Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore is supporting a bill before the state's Assembly that would set quality standards for managed care plans and expand the Department of Health's oversight of health insurers.

The bill, sponsored by Republican Sen. Stephen H. Martin, would shift responsibility for overseeing the quality of health insurance to the Health Department from the Bureau of Insurance.

State oversight, which applies now only to HMOs, would include other types of plans, including provider-sponsored organizations and preferred-provider organizations. The bill also would establish a procedure for investigating consumer complaints.
