Medallion FAMIS

Empowering your family's healthcare

Virginia’s updated Medicaid program, Medallion 4.0, focuses on making your care more personal and community-focused,  something we know a little about.

To choose or switch back to Virginia Premier, call 1-800-643-2273.

We know how important it is to you, as a parent, to see your child grow up happy, healthy and strong. That’s why we offer quality programs and services to our FAMIS members. Our Medallion FAMIS plan, Virginia Premier Elite Family, ensures that your child receives access to appropriate care though each stage of life: infancy, childhood, and adolescence (teen years).

Is your child eligible?

To be eligible, or able to get Medicaid, your child must be a resident of the state of Virginia, a U.S. national, citizen, permanent resident, or legal alien, and you must meet the state’s income requirements. You can find out if your child’s eligible by answering a few questions through Cover Virginia’s screening tool. Click here to learn more.

If you think your child might be eligible for FAMIS, there are several ways that you can apply. You can:

How to choose Virginia Premier

When you apply, let the state know that you want Virginia Premier to be your child’s health plan.

If you receive a letter from the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) and your child is not assigned to Virginia Premier, you can still switch to the plan you want. Within 90 days of your assignment, you can switch plans by calling the Managed Care Help Line at 1-800-643-2273. Have your Medicaid ID number ready and tell them you want to switch to Virginia Premier.
