Moving Ahead: Coverage Expansion Next Steps

The latest edition of VHHA’s FOCUS publication looks ahead to the implementation of Medicaid expansion now that Virginia policymakers have authorized it in the Commonwealth. As many as 400,000 low-income, uninsured adults in Virginia will be eligible for coverage under the plan approved by the General Assembly and the Governor. Now, the work to prepare Virginia to accommodate these people, secure federal approval for program reforms, implement two new provider assessments, and commence with a coverage program as of Jan. 1, 2019 is underway and VHHA is actively engaged in the process. The new edition of FOCUS provides an overview of what’s happening and what’s to come. It can be read online here.
