West Virginia has a new enactment for medical discount providers referred to as HB 4404. The law requires a surety bond equal to or more than $35,000 to be posted by discount medical establishments. The bond attained by the discount medical organizations must be in favor of the Insurance Commissioner for the advantage of individuals that may be damaged by the organization’s breach of the new law; it is mandatory that the insurance company who wrote the bond is licensed in the state.
