The rules for health coverage in Virginia have changed. Over 400,000 Virginians, including those who work in retail, construction, childcare, landscaping, food service, or other jobs that don’t provide health insurance, will soon have access to quality, low-cost health care. Are you one of them? And what do you need to know?
