Child Health Insurance

Your children may be eligible to get free or low cost insurance through Virginia’s Medicaid/FAMIS programs (FAMIS stands for Family Access to Medical Insurance Security).

Eligibility is based on a family’s current monthly income — See the income chart for eligibility limits.

Medicaid/FAMIS insurance covers most medical and dental care — and eyeglasses too. With Medicaid/FAMIS coverage, kids get access to:

  • doctor visits
  • hospital care
  • dental care
  • prescription medicines
  • eyeglasses
  • immunizations
  • regular check-ups — and more

Medicaid/FAMIS are comprehensive health insurance. It helps children stay healthy and get care when they are sick.
