Virginia's Medicaid Program


The Director of the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) has established the Medicaid Member Advisory Committee (MAC) in order to provide a formal method for enrollees’ voices to be included in the DMAS decision-making process and to inform DMAS change management strategies. The committee is made up entirely of Medicaid-enrolled individuals or an authorized representative of an enrollee. The Director of DMAS also designates a DMAS staff member to serve on the committee. The committee members examine and provide input on the impact of DMAS services and programs. The purpose is to obtain the insight and recommendations of Virginia’s Medicaid enrollees in order to help the DMAS Director improve the overall experience for all Virginia Medicaid applicants and enrollees. Committee members will serve for at least one year.  Scheduled quarterly meetings are open to the public, with a comment period reserved in each meeting.

Our Faces of Medicaid publication features eight powerful and inspiring testimonials from our members. Get to know these incredible men and women and learn more about the Medicaid program.
