The companies will be selling plans in Virginia and Washington this spring and hope to begin selling plans in Maryland this summer, Guardian says.

Destiny Health has developed a health plan strategy that combines use of personal health accounts with wellness programs and rich benefits for preventive care and costs that are difficult for consumers to control.
