Medicaid in Virginia*

"Medicaid and FAMIS Plus (Medicaid coverage for children) are programs that help pay for medical care. To be eligible for Medicaid or FAMIS Plus you must have limited income and resources (things that you or someone in your household own) and you must be in one of the groups of people covered by Medicaid. Some groups covered by Medicaid are: pregnant women, children, parents who have children under age 18 in the home, people with disabilities, and people age 65 and older. Each group has its own eligibility rules but all people within the same group are treated the same. Medicaid is not designed to help everyone with every medical expense. "
