Medicaid COVID Response
The Virginia Medicaid agency implemented a variety of policies in 2020 in response to the needs of our members and providers as they confronted the COVID-19 pandemic. Policies protecting members from losing coverage remain in effect, and there is currently no official expiration date for these protections. Some policies affecting providers will end on June 30, 2021, with the expiration of the state Public Health Emergency executive orders.
Please click on the link to the COVID-19 Medicaid Information Eligibility, Enrollment, and Appeals fact sheet to review policies that will be ending on June 30 and those that do not yet have an expiration date.
