Medicaid Expansion

COMING SOON: New Health Coverage for Virginia Adults!

January 1, 2019 will bring new health coverage to Virginia for adults, ages 19 - 64, with household incomes up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level ($16,754 per year for an individual or $28,677 for a family of 3)! Applicants must also meet citizenship or immigration and residency requirements. The new coverage will provide low- or no-cost health insurance to nearly 400,000 adults across the state.

The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS), Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS), and the Cover Virginia Call Center (CVCC) are working hard to get ready and are making every effort to ease the application and enrollment process for the new coverage.

As details become solidified and more information is available, updates are posted to www.CoverVa.org/expansion
