Virginia Bureau Names Blauvelt Deputy Commissioner of Life and Health Division

April 4, 2017

The State Corporation Commission’s Bureau of Insurance (Bureau) in Virginia has named Julie S. Blauvelt deputy commissioner of its Life and Health Division.

In this capacity, she oversees a staff that reviews insurance policy rates and forms, performs market conduct examinations, conducts consumer outreach programs and handles consumer inquiries and complaints involving life and health insurance matters, internal appeals and external review. She replaces Althelia P. Battle, who retired effective April 1.

Blauvelt has worked for the Bureau in a variety of capacities for 23 years. She first joined the Bureau as a financial examiner trainee in the Company Licensing Section. She later worked in the Bureau’s Office of the Managed Care Ombudsman and the Policy, Compliance and Administration Division.

Before assuming her new post, she worked in the Life and Health Division, where she oversaw the plan management process for which the Bureau is responsible under the federal health care law. This involves reviewing rates and forms and performing market analyses of health care plans before recommending them for inclusion in the federally facilitated health insurance exchange in Virginia.

In addition to her service with the Bureau of Insurance, she worked for eight years as a regulatory compliance manager for a local health maintenance organization (HMO) and was the company’s representative on the Virginia HMO Association (now Virginia Association of Health Plans).
