What is Medicaid?

Medicaid is a public health insurance program that gives health coverage to millions of Americans, including:

  • Eligible low-income adults
  • Children
  • Pregnant women
  • Elderly adults
  • People with disabilities

Medicaid pays for most healthcare, including things like doctor visits, prescription drugs, or a hospital stay. The federal government sets the guidelines for the program. Medicaid programs differ from state to state.

The Commonwealth of Virginia provides Medicaid benefits to eligible Virginians. Molina Healthcare of Virginia is a health plan, or Managed Care Organization (MCO). That means that we give Medicaid benefits to our members through our own network of doctors and hospitals. When you apply for Medicaid benefits in Virginia, the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) assigns you to an MCO, or you may select one of your choice.
