When you apply for Medical Assistance, you are screened for all possible programs based on your age, income, and other information. To be eligible for a Medical Assistance Program, you must meet the financial and non-financial eligibility conditions for that program. Please visit the Virginia Department of Social Services’ (VDSS) Medicaid Assistant Program page for eligibility details and/or VDSS Medicaid Forms and Applications page for application and other Medicaid form details.
FAMIS is Virginia’s health insurance program for children of eligible families including those who meet one of the following categories:
Children under age 21
Foster Care and Adoption Assistance Child under age 26
Pregnant women including two months post delivery
Medicaid eligible persons who do not meet certain exclusion criteria must participate in the program. Enrollment is not a guarantee of continuing eligibility for services and benefits under the Virginia Medical Assistance Services Program.
