On-Demand Training

This SignUpNow on-line, on-demand training curriculum was last updated in July 2018. It does not yet include information about the New Adult Health Coverage that begins on January 1, 2019. For a list of live, in-person training workshops that DO include information about the New Adult Health Coverage, please click here.

The online, on-demand training curriculum is based on content from the SignUpNow Tool Kit and the in-person workshops the project conducts around the Commonwealth on Virginia’s Medicaid/FAMIS programs.

In each 20-30 minute module, you will learn information about an aspect of Virginia’s Medicaid/FAMIS programs. The modules include information on:

  • the programs and the agencies involved in the application process;
  • financial and non-financial eligibility guidelines;
  • how to complete the application for coverage (paper, online, and telephonic versions);
  • how long someone is on coverage and how to renew their benefits; and
  • the services the programs cover and how those services are accessed once a person is enrolled.

Each module contains learning objectives, key points addressed, a graded post-test, and evaluation survey questions.  The modules also include helpful attachments, links to web sites that can be of further assistance, and a glossary of terms. Slide handouts for each module are included under “Resources” in the upper right hand corner of the module.

These modules were created with Articulate, a program that creates Flash versions of presentations. Because Flash is installed on approximately 98% of all computers in use today, you should not need to download any additional software to access these programs.  However, if you need to download Flash, go to Adobe Flash.
