Medallion Medicaid

Empowering your family's healthcare

Virginia’s updated Medicaid program, Medallion 4.0, focused 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 or visit the Virginia Managed Care website. 

For over 20 years, Virginia Premier has provided high-quality Medicaid coverage to the individuals and working families of Virginia. And we’re continuing to do so with Virginia Premier Elite Individual, our Medallion Medicaid plan.

Virginia Premier Elite Individual makes healthy living easy by offering affordable care, no-referral specialist visits, and unique benefits such as our 24/7 Nurse Advice Line and no-cost cell phone.
