On Thursday, June 7, 2018, Governor Northam signed a state budget that expanded Virginia’s Medicaid program. Starting January 1, 2019, Medicaid will be available to eligible adult Virginians ages 19 – 64 who live in households earning ≤138% of the Federal Poverty Level ($28,676 for a family of three in 2018). Nearly 400,000 Virginians will be income-eligible.
Coverage will be comprehensive and will include doctor, hospital and emergency services, prescription drugs, behavioral health and substance use services; and more. To find out more or to use an eligibility screening tool, please go to the Cover Virginia Website.
