Who May Be Eligible for Full Medicaid Benefits?

The following people may be eligible for full Medicaid benefits: 

  1. Pregnant women (single or married) whose income is at or below 133% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Once eligible for Medicaid, pregnant women remain eligible throughout the pregnancy and up to 60 days after the pregnancy ends.
  2. Infants born to Medicaid-eligible women. The infants stay eligible until their first birthday.
  3. Children under age 19.
  4. Children under age 21 who are in foster care or subsidized adoptions.

Medicaid Effective Date

Medicaid eligibility usually starts on the first day of the month of application. Medicaid may be available for the 3 months prior to your application if you are found eligible and have unpaid medical bills.

What Income Is Counted?

All earnings (with certain deductions) and unearned income, such as Social Security, Veterans’ benefits, retirement pensions, interest on savings, support payments, alimony and certain other types of income are added together and compared to set limits.

A face to face interview IS NOT required for Medicaid. This application can be mailed, faxed, e-mailed or dropped off at our office. However, your application CANNOT be processed unless it has been COMPLETED, SIGNED, and DATED. You will then be contacted by mail as to the specific proofs needed, such as those listed above.

Other Insurance and Medicaid 

You may have medical insurance in addition to Virginia Medicaid. In some instances, Medicaid will pay the cost of private insurance premiums if it is cost-effective to do so. This is known as the Health Insurance Premium Payment Program (HIPP).

The Medicaid Program pays after other insurance pays.
