Child Health Insurance Resources

Too many Virginia children remain uninsured, despite the availability of the FAMIS programs, Virginia’s state-sponsored health insurance for children and pregnant women.

The Virginia Health Care Foundation is deeply involved in outreach efforts to help communities reach out to eligible families and help them enroll their children.  VHCF achieves this both via Project Connect grants that fund outreach programs and through its support of SignUpNow. Since 1999, VHCF-funded application assisters have helped enroll over 105,000 individuals. Via its SignUpNow initiative, VHCF has trained more than 12,000 people.

SignUpNow is a resource for community-based organizations dedicated to helping Virginians enroll in and benefit from Medicaid/FAMIS (Virginia’s state-sponsored health insurance programs).

Created by the Virginia Coalition for Children’s Health, SignUpNow is administered as the training and technical assistance arm of VHCF’s Children’s Health Insurance Initiative.
