Virginia's Medicaid Program

Return to Normal Enrollment Town Halls / Listening Sessions

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act directed states to maintain Medicaid health coverage for individuals enrolled on or after March 18, 2020, regardless of changes in their circumstances through the end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. Recent federal guidance in the 2023 Consolidated Appropriations Act ends this continuous coverage requirement on March 31, 2023. In March of 2023, the Department of Medical Assistance Services and the Department of Social Services will resume full redeterminations of Medicaid eligibility, with the first closures occurring on April 30, 2023. Over the course of 12 months, redeterminations will be initiated for all 2.2 million Virginians enrolled in Medicaid. We invite all of our community partners, stakeholders, and community members to join us as we share information about how resuming to normal operations will impact members and how Medicaid partners can assist during the transition.
