Virginia's Medicaid Program

For Children

Overview: Coverage for Children

There are two health coverage programs for children in Virginia who qualify. Both programs have full benefits. There are no enrollment costs or monthly premiums. Medicaid for Children and the FAMIS program are for children up to age 19 whose household income is within the limits. Children under age 21 who are in foster care or subsidized adoptions may qualify. Newborns of mothers who are enrolled in Medicaid or FAMIS MOMS qualify for coverage for the first year.
