Carilion Health System has announced it's getting out of the health insurance business.
It will no longer own Carilion Health Plans. That division owns and manages employer sponsored health plans affecting more than 21-thousand patients in Southwest Virginia.
That's just one of several changes the company plans to make in light of rising health care costs.
Carilion says it'll eliminate 43 positions- most of which are already vacant.
The company says very few people will actually lose their jobs. Also, selected capital improvement projects will be delayed, but the expansion at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital will continue as scheduled.
In the meantime, Carilion Health Plans says it will generally continue to operate as usual, as it looks for a new buyer.
