Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus, or CCC Plus, is a Medicaid program that offers enhanced benefits and a person-centered approach to care. Every member has a care team dedicated to providing personalized healthcare and support. Our CCC Plus plan, Virginia Premier Elite Plus, offers these enhanced benefits, plus our own unique benefits, all with a personal touch.
Are you eligible?
If you are able to get health care coverage with CCC Plus, then the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) will sign you up. You may be signed up if you are eligible for Medicaid and:
- Are 65 or older
- Have a disability
- Get long-term services and supports
- Live in a nursing facility
- Are in a waiver program such as the CCC Plus Waiver
You can only sign up for Virginia Premier Elite Plus if DMAS enrolls you into a CCC Plus plan. To find out if you’ve already been enrolled into a CCC Plus plan, you can check online at cccplusva.com or call the CCC Plus Helpline at 1-844-374-9159 (TTY: 1-800-817-6608).
How to choose Virginia Premier
If you’re enrolled in a different CCC Plus plan, but would like to switch to Virginia Premier, all you have to do is call the CCC Plus Helpline at 1-844-374-9159 (TTY: 1-800-817-6608).
