Support SB861

Senate Bill 861, co-sponsored by Senators Monty Mason and Siobhan Dunnavant, would allow for the creation of benefits consortiums for small businesses in Virginia.

What are benefits consortiums?

They allow small businesses to come together as a single large pool to spread risk, reduce costs, and obtain lower premium rates than existing small group coverage.

Why are they important?

Benefits consortiums will expand access and lower premiums for small businesses across the Commonwealth. The five pillars that underpin this concept are that benefits consortiums will:

Provide broad access to Small Businesses

Deliver Lower Premiums

Ensure Quality Coverage

Offer Strong Consumer Protections

Maintain Financial Security and Solvency

Who are we?

The Virginia Small Business Health Care Alliance is a diverse, growing coalition of businesses and organizations statewide supporting SB861, including:
