Healthcare providerVirginia Code 8.01-27.5:  Requires healthcare providers to submit their bills to a patient’s medical insurance company.  This was an issue because some healthcare providers were refusing to submit the bills in cases of accidents - they were waiting to get paid as a result of settlement or verdict.  This often times resulted in a negative impact on a patient’s credit, as they could not pay the bills and healthcare providers were submitting to collection agencies who reported past due accounts to the credit reporting agencies. 

Virginia Code 18.2-186.3(D):  The punishment for identity theft where five or more persons’ information was changed to a Class 5 felony and that of 50 or more people to a Class 4 felony.
