450,000 Virginians Enrolled in Health Coverage Through Medicaid Expansion

"We could never envision that we would reach this milestone amid a historic health emergency, but the timing is a reminder of the importance of state leaders' decision to expand this vital program," said DMAS Director Karen Kimsey. "Medicaid is an essential tool in the Commonwealth's response to COVID-19. Thousands of individuals are experiencing the loss of employment and insurance, and we want them to know that we are here to help them access health care during this critical time."

More adults in Virginia now have access to quality, low-cost and no-cost health insurance. Virginians aged 19-64 can submit an application at any time of the year to get the health care they need so they don't have to worry about getting sick or having an accident.
