Virginia offers two Medical Assistance programs: the Medicaid Program and the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security Plan (FAMIS). Medicaid covers children under age 19 years, parents and caretakers of dependent children, pregnant women, blind or disabled individuals, and adults age 65 years and over. FAMIS covers children under age 19 and pregnant women, through the FAMIS MOMS program.
Medicaid and FAMIS have different financial and non-financial eligibility requirements. To be eligible for Medicaid or FAMIS, you must meet the financial and non-financial eligibility conditions for that program. Your application is a request for Medical Assistance. Your eligibility will be determined for all appropriate Medical Assistance programs, based on your age, income, financial resources, and other information.
