New Enrollment Site and Helpline for CCC Plus Medicaid Members
Effective June 1, 2023, Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus (CCC Plus) members will use a new website to choose a Medicaid health plan, learn about benefits, and search for in-network providers. The website, VirginiaManagedCare.com, will replace the existing CCCPlusva.com website, and is organized in a familiar manner. As of June 1, 2023, CCCPlusva.com will automatically redirect members to the new website going forward.

Medicaid Fraud Alert
Please be aware that DMAS has been notified that Medicaid members in other states have received fraudulent text messages during the “return to normal enrollment” period that seek payment from the member to prevent the loss of their health insurance.
Changes in Open Enrollment Dates
The dates of open enrollment are changing for all Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus (CCC Plus) members. Starting in 2023, your open enrollment dates depend on where you live.
Choose the Plan That's Right for You and Your Baby
Once you apply and receive an official notice of enrollment from Virginia, including a Medicaid card, it’s time to select your health plan. A health plan is managed by a private insurance company with a network of doctors and other medical providers working together to give you comprehensive health care. This may also be referred to as a Managed Care Organization, or MCO.
Notice: Personal Health Information Disclosed
Public Notice from Maximus Health Services, Inc. (Maximus) on behalf of the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS).

Your information may have been included in one of the documents.
