Union members advocated for years to win Medicaid Expansion so that we could expand health care to hundreds of thousands of Virginians, create tens of thousands of jobs, and save the state hundreds of millions of dollars.
Beginning January 1, 2019, more adults in Virginia have access to quality, low-cost health insurance through Medicaid.
On November 1, Virginia will begin accepting applications from these adults who are newly eligible for health coverage under Medicaid Expansion.

Single adults who make up to $16,754 per year, and families of 4 who make up to $34,638, will be eligible for coverage beginning January 1. For more detailed information, please visit https://www.coverva.org or call toll-free 1-855-242-8282.
Medicaid Expansion is also creating jobs, as local governments and health care providers are hiring staff to handle the expanded coverage.
Thank you to all the union members, family and advocates who worked so hard to win Medicaid Expansion. Let’s keep that momentum going to ensure that everyone has the information they need to sign up!
