State Plan


Medicaid State Plan

The Virginia Medicaid state plan is an agreement between Virginia and the Federal government describing how Virginia administers its Medicaid program. It gives an assurance that a state will abide by Federal rules and may claim Federal matching funds for its program activities. The state plan sets out groups of individuals to be covered, services to be provided, methodologies for providers to be reimbursed and the administrative activities that are underway in Virginia.

Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) State Plan

The CHIP State Plan is separate from the Medicaid State Plan. The CHIP State Plan is filed in accordance with Title XXI of the Social Security Act and describes how the state uses both state and federal funds to provide child health assistance to uninsured, low-income children. Virginia's programs administered by DMAS under CHIP State Plan authority are:
  • Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) for children 
  • FAMIS Prenatal Coverage for eligible uninsured pregnant individuals regardless of immigration or citizenship status.
